The Saints will be without running back Darren Sproles when they face the Falcons tonight.
Sproles, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury, is inactive. This is the first game of the season Sproles has missed, and he’s a tough player to replace: Sproles is third on the Saints in rushing, third in both receptions and receiving yards, and the Saints’ top punt returner and kickoff returner.
Also inactive for the Saints is guard Jahri Evans, who was questionable with an ankle injury.
The Falcons’ inactives are RB Josh Vaughan, DB Kemal Ishmael, LB Omar Gaither, G Harland Gunn, OT Sean Locklear, WR Brian Robiskie and DE Malliciah Goodman.
