As the question continues to linger regarding whether Saints running back Darren Sproles will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand, or something less than that, a source close to Sproles tells PFT that the diminutive dynamo could be back as soon as next week.

And the Saints will need him.  After hosting the Eagles on Monday night, the Saints welcome the Falcons to town, who could be carrying an 8-0 record into the Superdome.

Sproles definitely is out for Monday night.
