Darren Sproles Out vs. Bucs in Week 2 with Hamstring Injury

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles is out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 after suffering a hamstring injury, according to NFL reporter Adam Caplan.

Head coach Doug Pederson told reporters Sproles suffered the hamstring injury in practice.

It's hardly the news Sproles wants, considering he missed the final 13 games of the 2017 regular season and all three of Philadelphia's playoff games during its Super Bowl-winning run because of a torn ACL and broken arm.

Those injuries figured to spell the end of Sproles' career, but the 35-year-old refused to bow out on that sour note.
