Darren Sproles RB PHI 5 Months

Sproles had an eight-yard touchdown carry, a 65-yard punt return touchdown and a 13-yard reception during Monday's 45-21 win over the Panthers.

Sproles struck early with an eight-yard touchdown off the left end, then housed a punt return later in the first quarter. He otherwise had a quiet game, but while he doesn't get enough touches to provide consist production, he's been a huge part of the Eagles' success this season.

Sproles (knee) had three carries for 17 rushing yards and four catches on five targets for 46 receiving yards Sunday against the Texans.

Sproles did not play last Sunday against the Cardinals due to his knee injury, and while he was able to get back on the field, he finished with fewer carries than Chris Polk, who rushed eight times for 50 yards and a touchdown. LeSean McCoy continues to dominate the carries (23 for 117 yards), so Sproles' fantasy value continues to be dependent on what he can do in the passing game, with Sunday's output the first receiving yards he's posted since Week 4.

Sproles (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Sproles had seven carries in each of his last two games (Weeks 5 and 6), but curiously did not have a reception in either contest. He'll likely get more looks in the passing game this week, though the Eagles may find it tough to run against Houston's stout run defense.

Sproles (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Sproles is set to return to action this week after missing last week's game with a sprained MCL. He scored a touchdown last time he took the field in Week 6, but averaged just 36.5 total yards per game over the last four contests he appeared in.

Sproles (knee) practiced in full Wednesday.

In his return to practice last week, Sproles built up to a full practice by Friday. While the unhinged showing didn't result in active status Sunday at Arizona, his first appearance since suffering a slight MCL tear in Week 6 appears imminent.

Sproles (knee) is practicing Tuesday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sproles was limited during practice last week, which ultimately led to an inactive status for Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. However, with another practice week to work back from a slight MCL sprain suffered in Week 6, Sproles stands a decent chance of playing Sunday versus the Texans. Nonetheless, his practice activity level will likely have to be monitored throughout this week and leading up to Sunday's kickoff.

Sproles (knee) is listed as inactive Sunday in Arizona, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Thus confirms a Sunday morning report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen. With Sproles out of commission, the Eagles will rely upon LeSean McCoy to power the ground game, but Chris Polk (hamstring) is poised to receive his first touch of the season as McCoy's primary backup.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen said during Sunday's pregame show that he does not expect Sproles (questionable, knee) to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

The Eagles won't officially release their inactives until roughly 90 minutes before their 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, but Sproles owners should not count on him being available. LeSean McCoy will lead the way for the Eagles as always, and Chris Polk could see more action on offense if Sproles is out.

Sproles (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, the Eagles' official site reports.

First, the good news: after two days of limited practice, Sproles was a full participant Friday and seems like he has a very real chance of returning from his torn MCL earlier than expected. The bad news: the matchup against the Cardinals is brutal. Arizona's stout defense has not allowed any opposing runner to top 64 rushing yards in a game this season.

Sproles (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

In Week 6, Sproles sustained a slight MCL tear to his left knee, which was expected to knock him out for at least two weeks. However, only a week-and-a-half later, he's logged a capped practice and is angling to play Sunday at Arizona. His activity level in drills will likely indicate whether or not active status is possible, but at the very least, he's now trending in the right direction.
