EA­GLES’ SPRO­LES RE-IN­JURES HAM­STRING

The Philadel­phia Ea­gles’ sea­son-long Dar­ren Spro­les in­jury de­ba­cle deep­ened with a re­port from ESPN’s Adam Schefter stat­ing that Spro­les had ag­gra­vated his ham­string in­jury in his re­turn to prac­tice Wed­nes­day, sidelin­ing the run­ning back for Sun­day night’s visit from the Dal­las Cow­boys.

Ea­gles coach Doug Ped­er­son said just be­fore prac­tice Wed­nes­day that he ex­pected Spro­les to play for the first time since the sea­son opener. Spro­les, 35, suf­fered his ham­string in­jury in prac­tice the next week and hasn’t played since.

Since it seemed Spro­les was ready, the Ea­gles waived re­turner De­An­dre Carter, who was picked up off waivers by the Hous­ton Tex­ans. It seems likely that new­comer Golden Tate will in­herit re­turn du­ties.
