ANAHEIM, Calif. — Darren Sproles returned to the Eagles on Wednesday. No, the running back hasn’t recovered from his injuries, but he was back on the practice field with his teammates for the first time since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and fractured his forearm.

Sproles, who has been rehabbing near his home in San Diego since suffering season-ending injuries against the New York Giants on Sept. 24, was at Angels Stadium as the Eagles continued preparations for Sunday’s game against the Rams.

After practice, Sproles told The Inquirer and Daily News that he hasn’t yet decided if this season will be his last in the NFL, but that he was leaning toward a return.
