Sproles' injuries came in the first half of the Eagles game against the Giants on Sunday when he landed awkwardly after a hit from NY safety Darian Thompson.

Doctors looked at Sproles' knee, as well as his arm, before he walked into the locker room on his own power.

The source said when Sproles' wrist surgery is done, the team will try to get a knee MRI; ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that Sproles suffered an ACL tear on the same play.

What was believed to only be a broken arm is now a season-ending, if not career-ending, injury for Eagles special teams star Darren Sproles.

The play came in the first half of the Eagles-Giants game.

The Pentagon defended the right of the United States to conduct the flyovers, following Ri's remarks on Monday. Trump responded with mockery, calling Kim "little rocket man".

As you can see, Sproles was initially hit in the arm. Thompson stands at 6 foot 1 and 213 pounds.

Last December, Sproles told ESPN that this might wind up being his final season before retiring.

The Eagles passing downs back had 11 yards on three carries in the 27-24 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. Even if he never plays another down, Sproles has already earned the right to be mentioned among the best all-purpose running backs in league history.

LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood are now tasked with manning the Eagles' backfield for the remainder of the season.
