Darren Sproles‘ frustrating injury problems are continuing.

Sproles, the Eagles running back who was limited to just three games last season and one game so far this season, is now expected to miss Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys.

Although the Eagles were expecting Sproles to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Sproles aggravated a hamstring injury in practice and now is unlikely to go on Sunday night.

That’s a major disappointment for the 35-year-old Sproles, who has indicated that he expects to retire after this season and is hoping to help the Eagles get to the Super Bowl before he goes. Although the Eagles are still hoping Sproles can help them on a playoff run, that apparently won’t start this week.

  1. No wobble, the SB champs are ready for a playoff run. It’s just tough for poor Sproles, that guy is an amazing pro and a yards eater. Wish him health and that he gets ready for the run to the playoffs so he can come in and make an impact.

  2. Sproles has had incredible agility his whole career which has really been whats kept him in the league for so long despite his size. His body just can’t take his own jukes anymore.

    Do I detect a wobble in the Eagles bandwagon???

    No sweetie, that’s just called an injury. Disappointing, but it happens all the time. In fact, the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles had several injuries they had to overcome last year on their way to the Super Bowl. Which they won.

  4. Eagles are my team, and Sproles has been awesome over the years, but I think its time to hang em up. Eagles need the roster spot and another RB.

  5. Because you’re a tough guy. That would never have happened to you. And if it did, you would have said “hey, Eagles. I’m giving you all this money back with interest.”

    Commenters are always the most noble.

    It should be fun, collecting his large paycheck while sitting with a soft tissue injury. He played 2 years too long, but he is getting paid, so there is that.

  6. There are still quite a few games to be played but the Eagles are looking like yet another team the won’t even make the playoffs after winning (or playing in) a SB. Very interesting….

    If only we could be in a division that year after year has 3 non-competitive teams, we could use it as a springboard to the SB. Not to take anything away from Patriots, which is something you might try once-in-awhile, but it certainly does help to have a schedule that contains 6 games against JV and then throw in a couple other JV teams.

    Yeah….because the Cowboys, Redskins and Giants are real juggernauts!!

    Go and look up the Pats 10 year winning % vs the NFC East vs. the AFC East and then get back to me…

  9. Great career for the man, his years with the chargers and saints are some of the most dynamic for a man his size. Nothing but respect for the man.
