Good question, Donna. Assuming Sproles misses Thursday’s game, it will be a five-game injury. And it’s always concerning when a 35-year-old running back coming off a torn ACL has a hamstring injury. At this point, the Eagles can be patient. If they were to add another running back, then they might have a decision to make. But Sproles is an important player for this team. He’s their punt returner, a reliable pass blocker, and a versatile offensive player. The offense will be better with him than without him. But he needs to be healthy to play, and he’s played only four games since the start of the 2017 season. So my guess is the Eagles will be patient — they don’t want his career to end on injured reserve — but Sproles must show improvement soon.
