It's not a good sign for Howard's availability against the New England Patriots on Sunday, given that the injury occurred before the team's bye last week and he's yet to be cleared. Howard was listed as limited in practices on Wednesday and Thursday.
Philadelphia also announced that running back Darren Sproles will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn right hip flexor muscle in practice this week. Sproles has played in just six games this season while dealing with injuries. The latest setback for the 36-year-old dynamic returner could spell the end of his magnificent 15-year NFL career.
Pederson also added that receiver Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is questionable for Sunday after missing practices this week.
The Eagles' injury-riddled offense will face the NFL's top defense on Sunday at far less than full-force.
