Ea­gles’ Spro­les re-in­jures ham­string

The Tribune (SLO) - - Weather -

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.


Raiders: Oak­land de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Paul Guen­ther de­nied there is any fric­tion be­tween him and coach Jon Gru­den and said the two re­main united in try­ing to im­prove a team that has been one of the big­gest dis­ap­point­ments in the NFL this sea­son. Cam­eras caught the two coaches get­ting into a heated ex­change af­ter a costly blown play in the Raiders’ 34-3 loss to San Fran­cisco a week ago. Obit: Wally Triplett, the trail­blaz­ing run­ning back who was one of the first African-Amer­i­cans draft- ed by an NFL team, has died. He was 92. The De­troit Li­ons and Penn State an­nounced Triplett’s death Thurs­day. Triplett was the third AfricanAmer­i­can se­lected in the 1949 draft, but he was the first of those draftees to play in a reg­u­lar-sea­son game. He played in 24 games for the Li­ons and Chicago Car­di­nals.
