Darren Sproles ruled out for Week 6

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Sproles hasn't played since Week 1 after suffering a hamstring injury against the Falcons. And that won't change this week. Sproles is out again, which means since Jay Ajayi is also sidelined -- he was placed on IR with a knee injury -- expect Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement to handle the majority of the running back touches on Thursday night against the Giants. For fantasy football purposes, Smallwood should get the first crack at the Ajayi role while Clement handes the change of pace duties. However, despite the uncertainty, both running backs could be used as upside Flex options in a favorable Week 6 matchup in New York.

Darren Sproles still not practicing Tuesday

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles did not practice with the team on Tuesday due to a hamstring injury that has sidelined him since the second week of the season.

Fantasy Impact

With the Eagles playing the Giants on Thursday night on a short week, it seems unlikely that Sproles will play. Look for an update on his status on Wednesday, but fantasy owners should expect to be without him for another week. With Sproles still out and Ajayi headed to injured reserve with a torn ACL, running backs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams will split time.

Darren Sproles ruled out for Week 5

Darren Sproles has been ruled out for Week 5's contest against the Vikings due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Sproles was injured in the opener and has now missed four straight weeks with the hamstring injury. In his absence, Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, and Wendell Smallwood will all have roles in the Eagles' backfield with Ajayi likely leading the way.

Darren Sproles (hamstring) misses practice again Wednesday

Eagles running back Darren Sproles was not practicing with the team during the portion of practice open to the media, reports Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Sproles has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Head coach Doug Pederson said that he considers Sproles day-to-day, but the running back has missed three weeks in a row and should be considered questionable at best heading into Week 5. Monitor his status throughout the rest of the week to see if he returns to practice.

Darren Sproles ruled out Week 4

Darren Sproles has been ruled out for the Eagles' Week 4 matchup against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Sproles hasn't been able to return to practice this week, and he'll head into the weekend inactive against the Titans. Given the cloudy Eagles' backfield and Sproles' injury, he's someone that's likely been dropped, but if not he's hard to roster at this point.
