Sproles (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Doug Pederson said that Sproles would focus his efforts on rehabbing his lingering hamstring injury rather than practicing, so the veteran's non-participation in the first two sessions of the week doesn't come as a surprise. With Sproles trending toward missing his ninth consecutive game Sunday against the Saints, the Eagles will lean on a backfield trio of Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams and Corey Clement.

Coach Doug Pederson that Sproles' main focus for this week will be continuing to train and rehab his hamstring injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles aren't officially listing Sproles as out for Sunday's game against the Saints, but the fact that Pederson didn't offer any indication the running back is close to returning to practice suggests the 35-year-old's absence will extend through another week. Sproles may need to demonstrate meaningful progress in his rehab this week in order to avoid a move to injured reserve, which would spell an end to his season.

Sproles is expected to remain out for multiple weeks after aggravating his hamstring injury during Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles has been sidelined since Week 1 with the injury, but was expected to return to action Sunday against the Cowboys after opening the week as a practice participant. Unfortunately for the veteran setback, he wasn't able to make it through one full session before the hamstring acted up again. In light of his latest setback, the Eagles intend to take a cautious approach with Sproles, with one source telling Rapoport that the 35-year-old may need 3-to-4 weeks of recovery time. The team will likely track Sproles' progress over the next week or two before determining if he can realistically contribute this season or if it's better to free up a roster spot by placing him on injured reserve.

Sproles (hamstring) won't return for Sunday's game against Dallas, but coach Doug Pederson still expects the 35-year-old to play before the end of the season, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since Week 1, only to aggravate his hamstring injury and then sit out Thursday and Friday. Despite the optimism from Pederson, it's fair to wonder if Sproles really will make it back this season. The Eagles will continue to deploy a backfield committee consisting of Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams and Corey Clement (illness).

Sproles (hamstring) was not spotted at Friday's practice, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles aggravated his hamstring injury at Wednesday's practice, and unless he gets some work in behind the scenes Friday, he will have missed two days of practice since. The Eagles were hoping to get Sproles back this week, but that appears unlikely at this point.

Sproles (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It would be surprising if Sproles practiced in any fashion before the end of the week after he reportedly aggravated his existing hamstring injury in his return to work Wednesday. Prior to his limited session that day, Sproles hadn' t practiced in any capacity since Week 1. The Eagles will presumably hold Sproles out through at least Sunday's game against the Cowboys while they continue to gain more information regarding his latest setback, but there's a real possibility the team may shut him down for the season and move him to injured reserve.

Sproles aggravated his hamstring injury during practice and is now expected to be out Sunday night against Dallas, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier this week, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said that he expected Sproles to be back on the field for the Week 10 matchup, but now his timeline is back to being a question mark. Sproles hasn't seen game action since Week 1, but the Eagles remain hopeful he can still make a recovery this season. In his stead, a committee of Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams will continue to split carries in the Philadelphia backfield.

Sproles (hamstring) was a limited participant Wednesday in his first practice appearances since Week 1, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old running back made good on coach Doug Pederson's stated expectation of a return to practice after a two-month absence. It's still far from a lock Sproles will be ready to face the Cowboys on Sunday, but he at least is on track to play at some pointing within the next few weeks. He'll likely handle a passing-down role in a backfield committee currently comprised of Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams.

Coach Doug Pederson said he expects Sproles (hamstring) to practice this week, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Pederson's comments leave the possibility open for Sproles to suit up Sunday against the Cowboys, the coach expressed similar optimism about the running back's readiness for practice in prior weeks, only for the veteran to log no recorded activity. As Rosenblatt's report notes, Sproles is still viewed as "limited" and "day-to-day" coming out of the Eagles' bye, so it's far from a given that the 35-year-old will open up Week 10 by participating in the team's initial session Wednesday. Even if the prediction holds true and Sproles does enough in the next few days to gain clearance for Sunday, he might be limited to a bit role coming off a nine-week absence while working within a backfield committee that also includes Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams.

While Sproles (hamstring) will not play this week and has not taken the field since Week 1, head coach Doug Pederson said Friday that he will play at some point this season, according to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

EDGE Analysis

Sproles' recovery has been a slow one, but it appears the Eagles are content to let the process play out and not place him on injured reserve. A target date for Sproles' return remains uncertain, but he will get a free week to rest and recover with the Eagles on bye in Week 9.
