We knew Darren Sproles would suit up Sunday after being designated as probable and practicing in full all week. The question was how much he'd play.
NFL Media's Stacey Dales reports, per a team source, that the running back was close to playing last week at Arizona. He's officially active.

The speedy Sproles has keyed several Eagles (5-2) wins this season, with his dynamic play in the rushing attack, through the air and in the return game.
