Darren Sproles has a hamstring injury

When the Eagles face on Sunday a team with plenty of plenty offensive weapons, they may not have another one of their own.

Coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Friday that running back Darren Sproles injured a hamstring on Thursday. Pederson dubbed it a “slight” injury.

So will it keep him from playing Friday?

“We’re going to see after this practice,” Pederson said. “We’ll make all those determinations — who is out, questionable, all that – we’ll list those after practice today after we get through the day.”

Sproles missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL. In Week One, he had five carries for 10 yards and four catches for 22. If he can’t play, more reps and touches will go to the likes of Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement.

    Too small for football? Maybe you haven’t noticed his 14 year career. Possibly hall of fame career.

    Did you really just throw out “too small to play football” in reference to Darren Sproles. You do know he’s currently 6th on the All Purpose Yardage list and less than 500 yards from being 5th.

    He hasn’t gotten any shorter, why would he be too short now?
    Older – Yes, but he’s proven over and over that he was never too short to play this game

    No offense but he has lasted longer than most players, no matter his size

  4. It’s a long season, and hammy injuries tend to linger, he probably doesn’t want too, but let him sit.

  5. Bummer. I like watching him play. I didn’t know he was still in the league until I watched the Eagles-Falcons game. When I saw him on the field, I was pretty happy and was rooting for him to break a big run or a nice return the entire game. He used to be a must-have player in our fantasy football league that included points per reception as well as return yards. I hope he heals up quickly and can prove to the people who think he’s too small and/or too old to play that they are wrong.

  6. Dynamite comes in small packages. Being too small to play 14 years when most RB’s don’t last 5 years is a weak argument.
