Sproles has provided a major lift to the Eagles this season. The 10th-year running back 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' impact has been especially important as LeSean McCoy struggled to get going in the season's first five weeks.

In addition, Rapoport added that defensive end Armonty Bryant has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and a partial MCL tear, per a source who's spoken with him. He'll also miss the season.
