Eagles' Darren Sproles suffered torn ACL, broken arm on same play

Eagles' Darren Sproles suffered torn ACL, broken arm on same play

Now a broken arm would have sidelined Sproles for a lengthy time, but he could have returned this season. Trainers were originally looking at Sproles' knee, but he was able to walk off under his own power, holding his right arm in obvious pain as he headed indoors.

Sproles was taken to the Eagles locker room for further evaluation and ruled out for the game. He went around the left side but was stopped for a one-yard loss.

The win over Kentucky extended the Gators' winning streak to 31 straight games, spanning more than three decades. Wadley had 80 yards rushing and 75 yards receiving and Nate Stanley threw for 191 yards and two TDs for Iowa.

A freak collision with second-year safety Darian Thompson resulted in Thompson's foot clipping Sproles' wrist, sending him to the ground in pain.

That's some serious bad luck for Sproles, who was closing in on 20,000 all-purpose yards for his career.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the injury to reporters on Monday and said Sproles will be out for the remainder of the 2017 season. "I can't.' The thing is, when you're chasing that ring...you really want to get that ring". The 2005 fourth-round pick has been one of the most entertaining players with the ball in his hands. In his absence, the Eagles will rely on LeGarrette Blount and Wendall Smallwood.
