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 was injured in the first half following an awkward plant and hit from safety Darian Thompson. Trainers were originally looking at the knee area. Sproles was able to walk off under his own power, though, and the concern quickly turned to his wrist as he held his right arm in obvious pain as he headed indoors. Replays showed that Thompson’s foot inadvertently hit Sproles on the arm.
The 34-year-old running back holds a key role in the Eagles rotation. LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood received the bulk of the carries in his absence Sunday.
Sproles has rushed for 61 yards this season on 15 carries. He also has seven receptions for 73 yards.
NFL Network first reported the Eagles’ concern that Sproles suffered a broken arm.

Observe ESPN’s Undroppable Players List: This is basically a safety net to ensure that owners in your league won’t drop a star player who could affect the outcome of your league via collusion or tanking. Any player on our undroppable list can’t be released to waivers. Note that we take players off the list if they are injured or no longer warrant being on the list because of poor performance. If you genuinely trust all of your fellow owners to not mess with the integrity of the league, say, “No” to this setting. Generally speaking, though, it’s wise to just be safe and let ESPN declare players who should not be droppable.
