Darren Sproles Has A “Slight” MCL Tear, Expected To Miss Two Weeks


Jeff McLane reports that Eagles RB Darren Sproles has a “slight” MCL tear in his left knee and is expected to miss “at least two weeks.

If this timetable is accurate, Sproles should have an opportunity to return for their Week 9 match up against the Texans.


Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly reports that Eagles RB Darren Sproles is expected to miss a few weeks after he sustained a knee injury during Sunday night’s game.

  • However, Mosher adds that although the initial fear was that Sproles had a torn ACL, that is not the case.
  • Howard Eskin tweets that Sproles likely to be out 2-3 weeks with an MCL sprain.


Eagles RB Darren Sproles suffered a left knee injury during Sunday night’s win over the New York Giants.

Sproles left the field under his own power, but NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya mentioned during the broadcast that the Eagles team doctor was “concerned after they tested the stability of his ACL and MCL.” According to Tafoya, Sproles was was “pretty unhappy” about the news.

However, after the game Sproles was able to walked out of the locker room without any noticeable issues and mentioned: “I’ll be all right.”

Sproles will undergo an MRI on his injury knee Monday, according to Jeff McLane.

The Eagles only had two active running backs last night with Chris Polk dealing with a hamstring injury, so it would definitely be a setback if he were forced to miss some time.

Overall, it appears as though Sproles did not suffered a major knee injury, but we’ll have more updates as the news is available.
