Sproles has broken arm and torn ACL

Eagles' RB Darren Sproles suffers broken arm vs. Giants, report says

The Philadelphia Eagles believe running back Darren Sproles broke his arm during Sunday's game against the New York Giants, a league source confirmed.

Sproles suffered the injury after a hit from Giants safety Darian Thompson followed by an awkward plant from Sproles, who held his right arm while walking off the field under his own power. In just over four seasons with the Eagles, Sproles has rushed 246 times for 1,134 yards and 11 touchdowns while also hauling in 154 catches for 1,275 yards and three touchdowns.

There is better news about defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf) and middle linebacker Jordan Hicks (ankle).

It could be a career-threatening injury for the 34-year-old running back.

An MRI is scheduled for Monday morning to gauge the extent of the injury.

Assuming that is confirmed, Sproles will not be playing again this season and it is fair to wonder if he will ever play again.

Off the field, the Eagles will be losing one of the most respected players in the locker room. Get the app and get the game. Fellow rookie back and former Wisconsin Badger Corey Clement racked up 22 yards and ran for his first career touchdown.
