  • Eagles' Darren Sproles: Officially on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Eagles placed Sproles (arm/knee) on injured reserve Monday. Diagnosed with a broken arm and a torn ACL, the 34-year-old running back faces a long rehab process and might even consider retirement. The Eagles are left without a proven pass catcher in the backfield, though Wendell Smallwood did have 57 receptions over his final two seasons (2014-15) at West Virginia. As such, Smallwood is the best bet to take over Sproles' role on passing downs, which could in turn open up a bit more rushing work for LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement. The Eagles selected Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) in the fourth round of the 2017 draft to groom him as Sproles' eventual replacement, but the rookie is already on injured reserve and isn't expected to return this season. The Eagles might now considering bringing Pumphrey back from IR if his hamstring heals quickly.

  • Sproles tore his ACL and broke his arm on the same play in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 34-year-old is is thus slated to miss the rest of the season, which leaves the Eagles with a pass-catching void in their backfield, with Donnel Pumphrey (previously viewed Sproles' heir apparent) on IR. For now, Wendell Smallwood, LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement are the team's healthy running backs, though the Eagles could move to add further depth at the position. With that in mind, Byron Marshall is a candidate to be promoted from the team's practice squad.

  • Sproles is believed to have suffered a broken arm and is out indefinitely, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Sproles will undergo further testing Monday to determine the exact severity of his situation. In any event, his impending absence is a major blow to the Eagles passing game, of which Sproles is an integral part. Both LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood figure to see added playing time moving forward, while rookie Corey Clement -- who carried six times for 22 yards and a touchdown against the Giants on Sunday -- could take on an expanded role as well. Smallwood, in particular, is the best fit for the passing downs that accounted for much of Sproles' playing time.

  • Eagles' Darren Sproles: Ruled out Sunday

    Sproles (wrist) won't return to Sunday's contest versus the Giants. Concluding Week 3 with only three rushes for 11 yards, Sproles now faces the prospect of a wrist injury of unknown severity. The Eagles backfield has been whittled down to three healthy bodies: LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement.

  • Eagles' Darren Sproles: Suffers wrist injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sproles is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Giants due to a wrist injury. Sproles remained on the turf after taking nary a hit on a cut, spurring thoughts that some type of leg injury was to blame. However, he's in fact tending to a wrist issue, which could end his day after just three carries for 11 yards. In his stead, LeGarrette Blount was immediately the workhorse running back on a touchdown drive, but Wendell Smallwood and perhaps even undrafted rookie Corey Clement could get in on the act.
