In the same play where he broke his arm, Darren Sproles also tore his ACL, ESPN.com reported.
Limited Mens Robin Roberts Jersey Both injuries will require surgery, with the procedure on his arm scheduled for Monday, according to the report. Surgery on his knee will come at a later date.
Sproles’ injuries came in the first half of the Eagles game against the Giants on Sunday when he landed awkwardly after a hit from New York safety Darian Thompson.
Thompson’s foot hit Sproles in the arm, although trainers were examining his knee initially. He was able to walk off the field on his own after the hit.
With both surgeries, the Eagles have placed Sproles on injured reserve. Through Week 3, he had rushed for 61 yards and caught seven passes for 71 yards.
It’s fair to say that the Falcons were probably unlucky to find themselves needing to hold on for dear life inside of two minutes. Matt Ryan was intercepted three times Sunday, and while the first of those three picks was an excellent job by Glover Quin of reading Ryan’s eyes and sprinting nearly all the way from one hashmark well past the other to undercut a Julio Jones in-breaking route for a pick-six, the other two were gifts. Both of Ryan’s other interceptions bounced off an open receiver’s hands and into the waiting arms of Darius Slay. The first set up the Lions on the edge of the red zone for a field goal, and the second cost the Falcons what would have been second-and-1 at the Detroit 10-yard line and likely a minimum of three points.
His final numbers might not have been especially impressive, but Stafford has been playing lights-out so far this season. Some of the throws he made in this game were positively Aaron Rodgers-esque. The league’s highest-paid player sneaked the ball through the tiniest of windows to hit T.J. Jones for a 29-yard completion to start the final drive of the game.
