Sproles would be the second running back to be put on the IR when/if the MRI confirms the injury, joining rookie Donnel Pumphrey. Through Week 3, he had rushed for 61 yards and caught seven passes for 71 yards.
Linebacker Jordan Hicks (ankle) and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf) exited the game in the second quarter and did not return. The 2005 fourth-round pick has been one of the most entertaining players with the ball in his hands.
Trump Issues New Travel Restrictions As Ban Expires
Trump had called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" during his election campaign. The restrictions on individuals and new countries covered by executive order will not be implemented immediately.
The 34-year-old contemplated retiring in the past, and the latest injuries could spell the end to an wonderful National Football League career.
Last December, Sproles told ESPN that this might wind up being his final season before retiring. Speculation at the time said Sproles could go on injured reserve and possibly return in eight weeks.
Assuming that is confirmed, Sproles will not be playing again this season and it is fair to wonder if he will ever play again. LeGarrette Blount had his best game with the Eagles, gaining 67 yards on 12 carries (5.6 ypc) and scoring a touchdown.
