Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs STL (7 / 51 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With McCoy struggling to gain yards to the outside, Sproles actually took his first touch of the game to the left sideline and raced for a 10 yard gain showing off his pure speed and quickness. Sproles once again gave the Eagles an additional spark in the Punt Return game as he had an explosive 23 yard return to help give the Eagles good field position. Sproles next touch didn't come until near the end of the first half but he made it count with a shifty run on 3rd down that he turned into an Eagles first down on a 10 yard gain. On 3rd down Sproles made a huge play and ran for a 25 yard gain and helped the Eagles continue to run the clock down.

2014 Week 6 vs NYG (7 / 39 / 1 rush, 4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sproles first action on the night was a quick 2 yard gain out to the left side of field and hobbled off after the run. Sproles once again showed his valuable play in the punt return game with a 43 yard return that helped set the Eagles up in great field position to in the end kick a field goal and put some more points on the board. Sproles had a 5 yard run to the left and go tthe Eagles into a very make able field goal try. Just before halftime Sproles had a 7 yard run straight up the middle. Sproles took a handoff from Foles and raced to the left side and followed blocks and used his speed to get into the endzone for a 15 yard touchdown run and help put the Giants away for good. Sproles looked to get a little banged up late in the 3rd quarter and came out of the game the rest of the way.

Eagles | Darren Sproles out a few weeks (Mon Oct 13, 11:37 AM) - Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is believed to have avoided an anterior cruciate ligament tear. However, he's expected to miss a few weeks due to the knee injury.

Our View: With Sproles out, it will change the target structure in the passing game for the Eagles. We could see more passes thrown toward the tight ends in the coming weeks. Sproles won't be vulturing away any carries for LeSean McCoy either, so a larger role could be there too.

Our View: The Eagles are on bye next week, so we might not get an update on this injury right away, but Sproles' owners should prepare for a multi-week absence and feel like they dodged a bullet if he is back soon.
