Bad news for Darren Sproles

For all the question marks the Philadelphia Eagles had on offense coming into this season, they did have one known. And that was Darren Sproles. Even as he got up in age, he’s still been quick and elusive.

He had said coming into the year that this will probably be his last season. If that’s true, then his football career is now over.

Adam Schefter says that when Sproles got knocked out of the win over the New York Giants, it was really bad. Really bad.

“Eagles RB Darren Sproles tore his ACL and broke his arm on same play, sources tell @mortreport and me. Surgery on arm today, knee later,” Schefter tweets.

If I’m already thinking about retiring, I have very little interest in rehabbing a torn ACL, just to hopefully make it back to training camp next year. I’m looking at my bank account and deciding if I can really call it quits and be done.

We may have seen the last of Darren Sproles and that’s a shame. Everybody loves the guy.
