He was expected to miss one game -- potentially two -- due to the injury, but getting the shifty runner on the practice field, even on a limited basis, after the bye week is a positive for his availability Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
The 10-year pro has provided a huge lift to the Eagles in the rushing attack, passing game and as a return man. Sproles is averaging 6.6 yards per carry and 12.4 yards per reception. He also has an 82-yard punt return for a score.
Sproles told reporters Tuesday he was feeling "pretty good."
When asked if he'd play this week the running back replied: "The way I'm feeling, yeah. But that's up to the coach."
Here are some other injuries we are tracking on Tuesday:
- Giants linebacker Jon Beason told WFAN that his toe "has progressively gotten worse," per NFL Media's Kimberly Jones. Beason is in Charlotte to see Dr. Anderson and says there is a 50-50 chance that the "smart thing" to do will be to have surgery and prepare for next season rather than try to play. "You do what you have to do," Beason said.
