Sproles rushed for 32 yards on nine carries and added four yards on three catches in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Who said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Sproles ended the 2016 season at 33 years old and setting a new career mark in rushing attempts. Often the scatback throughout his career, injuries, ineffectiveness and inexperience in Philadelphia's backfield led to Sproles taking the top job down the stretch. It sets up an interesting predicament in Philadelphia this offseason. On one hand, the Eagles can walk away from the $4 million owed to Sproles in 2017 with no cap penalty. On the other, the team would enter the season with little experience behind the oft-injured Ryan Mathews.

Sproles (concussion) compiled 40 yards and scored a touchdown on seven rushes, while securing both of his targets for 23 yards in Thursday's 24-19 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles opened the scoring with a 25-yard scamper in the first quarter, only his second touchdown of the season, both of which have come in the last three games he's been active for. Sproles saw limited work despite backfield mate Ryan Mathews' early exit from the contest with a stinger, but could be in line for a much bigger share of the tailback touches in Week 17 against the Cowboys if the latter's injury lingers.

Sproles (concussion) wasn't listed on the Eagles' final injury report in advance of Thursday's game versus the Giants, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a concussion sidelined him Sunday in Baltimore, Sproles had no trouble logging every practice rep this week. With his return imminent, he returns to a barren backfield behind Ryan Mathews due to Wendell Smallwood (knee) and Kenjon Barner (hamstring) landing on injured reserve over the last week and a half. Expect Sproles to handle a change-of-pace role, at the very least, Thursday.

Sproles (concussion) practiced in full Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

No representative of the Eagles' organization has confirmed whether Sproles has emerged from the concussion protocol. However, full designations on back-to-back injury reports is as good of a sign as any that his concussion is behind him. Expect clarification on Sproles' situation prior to Thursday's game against the Giants. If active, he should jump into his normal change-of-pace role with Kenjon Barner (hamstring) joining Wendell Smallwood (knee) on the sideline.

Sproles (concussion) would have been a full participant had the Eagles practiced Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles was sidelined for Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to a concussion, but coach Doug Pederson said Monday he expects the veteran to return for Thursday's game versus the Giants, as his estimated involvement to start this week suggests.

According to Eagles coach Doug Pederson, Sproles (concussion) should be cleared in time to play Thursday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles missed Sunday's loss to the Ravens after sustaining a concussion in Week 14. That absence, coupled with Kenjon Barner (hamstring) making a premature exit, resulted in Byron Marshall assuming No. 2 tailback duties behind Ryan Mathews. If Sproles can indeed clear protocol, he'd figure to reclaim his usual role for Thursday's divisional tilt.

Sproles (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles was unable to practice this week after suffering a concussion in last week's loss to the Redskins, so he will not be able to take the field in Week 15. Ryan Mathews will be the Eagles' primary running back against the Ravens, but head coach Doug Pederson said Byron Marshall -- who was called up from the practice squad this week -- will play a role in the backfield, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Kenjon Barner could factor in as well.

Sproles (concussion) will not take part in Wednesday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles is still in the league's concussion protocol, and he will not be able to get on the field Wednesday. Head coach Doug Pederson noted that he expects a couple other injured Eagles to play this week, but Sproles was not included in that group, so it's too early to gauge his availability for Week 15. If he is unable to go, Ryan Mathews would figure to see more work, and both Kenjon Barner and Byron Marshall would figure to suit up.

Sproles suffered a concussion Sunday against the Redskins and is now subject to league protocol, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles' concussion came after he'd already totaled 40 yards and a touchdown on his seven touches Sunday. While he'll now be unavailable to play until clearing league protocol, teammate Wendell Smallwood's knee injury leaves the Eagles even thinner at running back. That figures to leave Ryan Mathews as the clear-cut lead option in practice this week, with Kenjon Barner likely to get reps behind him with Sproles and Smallwood sidelined.

Sproles left Sunday's game versus the Redskins in order to be evaluated for a head injury.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles may soon enter the concussion protocol, which would mark the second Eagles running back to be ruled out in Week 14. With Wendell Smallwood (knee) also sidelined, Ryan Mathews is the only running back on the active roster.
