Subject: Darren Sproles Injury: Eagles running back gets hurt in Giants game

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles suffered a wrist injury during the team’s Week 3 home game against the New York Giants.

Sproles went down after getting tackled on a run play. He remained on the ground for a good amount of time before eventually getting up and walking off the field on his own power. From there, Sproles walked to the locker room with a slight limp.

The Eagles ruled Sproles questionable to return with a wrist injury, which is weird because it looked like he had a lower body issue. But I guess not.

Sproles is obviously a very important player to the Eagles’ success. He’s a great weapon as a runner, receiver, and punt returner. Not to mention a well-respected leader in the locker room.

There were already concerns about the Eagles’ running game entering this week. Losing Sproles does not help matters.

In other injury news, starting linebacker Jordan Hicks left the game early with an ankle injury and was ruled questionable to return.

Stay tuned to BGN for more updates.

Posted by Bleeding Green Nation: For Philadelphia Eagles Fans on Sunday, September 24, 2017


The Giants won the toss and elected to defer. Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense up first.

LeGarrette Blount was in the backfield for the first play, but the Eagles dropped back to pass. Wentz got sacked. Darren Sproles ran for a yard on second down. Jason Kelce committed a false start at home. Wentz threw to Alshon Jeffery short of the sticks on third down. Not a great start! Punt.

Donnie Jones had a great punt that had a chance to be downed at the 1-yard line. Dexter McDougle bumped into Kamu Grugier-Hill, however, and it was a touchback. Dumb. Doug Pederson challenged the ruling but it was upheld. To me, it looked like none of the players were in the end zone when the ball was touched. But I guess not.

As the Giants took over on offense for the first time, the Eagles had Jalen Mills follow Odell Beckham Jr. around the formation. New York benefited from a Nigel Bradham facemask penalty where Brandon Marshall actually grabbed Bradham’s first, but no flag on the Giants. No matter. The Giants ended up having to punt anyway after a 3rd-and-1 stop.

Wentz got sacked again on the Eagles’ first play of the second drive. Chance Warmack allowed the hit. Corey Clement got his first NFL carry: a gain of one yard. Wentz connected with Jeffery short of the sticks again. Punt.

The Giants drove to the Eagles’ 38-yard line before punting the ball. Malcolm Jenkins came up with a great tackle for loss on third down. Darren Sproles fielded the ball at the 10, so it was a mere 28-yard net difference for New York. Lol at Ben McAdoo.

Blount received a sarcastic cheer after taking a carry for three yards on first down. Blount received even bigger cheers after running up the middle for a 17-yard gain and bowling over two Giants defenders in the process. Beastly. Torrey Smith dropped another pass, his third of the season. Bad. The Eagles got into 4th-and-1 and went for it. Wentz quarterback sneak was successful. Worth noting the Eagles had Sproles, and not Blount, in the backfield on that conversion attempt.


Wendell Smallwood (!) did a great job of picking up a blitz to give Wentz time to hit Nelson Agholor for a first down. Then Sproles went down and limped off the field. Yikes, that’s not good. Wentz pulled off a magical scramble on 3rd-and-8 to move the Eagles deeper into the red zone. He’s a freaking magician with those.

Blount received cheers as the Eagles brought him back into the game. Then he immediately ran for a 5-yard touchdown. Not bad! The refs reviewed the play, however, and it was overturned with the ball at the 1-yard line. Didn’t matter. Blount ran it again and scored the touchdown. Then he got flagged for taunting (rolling the football at Landon Collins) after the play. Nice 18-play, 90-yard drive for the Birds. Eagles lead, 7-0.

The Giants took over and got a few first downs. Then Eli Manning aired it deep to Brandon Marshall and ... PICKED OFF! Great interception by Rasul Douglas on a ball that was a little underthrown. Impressive play by the rookie cornerback. The only bad news is that Jordan Hicks went to the locker room on this Giants drive.

The Eagles put Stefen Wisniewski in at left guard to replace Warmack. What is going on. Warmack didn’t get hurt. Smallwood showed up with some nice runs on this drive. Wentz had Jeffery open deep for a touchdown but he overthrew his receiver by a lot. Big missed opportunity. The Eagles went for it on 4th-and-8 around midfield but Wentz got sacked. Philly could have tried to punt and pin the Giants deep with a little over 2 minutes remaining in the first half. Then again, the math said to go for it.

New York took over and moved into field goal range. Fletcher Cox went down and slowly walked to the locker room. The Giants got to the 1-yard line and scored a touchdown. Actually, nope, Sterling Shepard didn’t cross the goal line with the ball. Then the Giants scored a touchdown again. Except Shepard dropped the ball as he fell to the ground out of bounds. So the Giants go for it on 4th-and-1, and ... STUFFED! Turnover on downs. Wow. Huge stop! Well done, Vinny Curry.

See, Doug knew what he was doing all along!



Cox and Hicks weren’t with the Eagles defense at the start of the second half. Then they were ruled out. Brandon Graham pressured Manning into an incompletion. Then Mychal Kendricks broke up a pass by hitting the receiver as it got to him. Giants go three and out. Torrey Smith fielded the punt with Sproles ruled out.

The Eagles drove into field goal range. They ran one of those beloved bubble screen passes on third down and it went for a whopping one yard. Surprise. Jake Elliott’s 52-yard field goal attempt hooks left. No good.

Manning comes back throwing and gets picked. Kendricks deflects a pass and Patrick Robinson tracks the ball in the sun for the interception. Defense comes up big yet again.

The Eagles put Warmack back in the game. The Eagles are apparently rotating their left guards. Wentz moved the chains on a quarterback sneak. Then he aired it out deep to Jeffery while on the run and Eli Apple got called for pass interference near the goal line. Ertz throws to a wide open Ertz in the end zone and the tight end drops it. Brutal. But then Ertz redeems himself as the Eagles run the same play and Ertz secures it for the touchdown. Eagles lead, 14-0.

The Giants move into the red zone thanks to some catches by Odell Beckham Jr. Jalen Mills comes up with a big pass breakup on 3rd-and-2. New York then goes for it at 4th-and-2 at the Eagles’ 13-yard line. Manning’s pass is INCOMPLETE. Broken up by Robinson. The Eagles’ defense stands tall again. Credit Tim Jernigan for generating pressure on that fourth down stop.


Wisniewski back in the game at guard. Wentz’s pass for Jeffery on third down is incomplete. Janoris Jenkins had pretty good coverage on him. Eagles punt and Donnie Jones shanks it.

Douglas whiffs on a short completion to Marshall to set up the Giants in the red zone. Then Manning connects with Beckham Jr. in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Pretty nice throw and catch by the Giants. After scoring, Beckham got down on all fours and pretended to be a doing peeing on a fire hydrant. OK. 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty. Eagles lead, 14-7.

The Eagles took back over and immediately turned the ball over. Ertz got stripped by Landon Collins. Awful. Just can’t do that in that spot.

The Giants take over with great field position. Then they score a touchdown. Manning to Beckham for a one-handed score. Nothing Mills could really do there. Not great! Tie game, 14-14.

The Eagles had to punt after Jeffery got called for pass interference on third down. Things not going so good.

Giants take over, Manning hits Shepard for a 77-yard touchdown. Absence of Rodney McLeod really being felt there. Giants lead, 21-14.

Wentz comes back by hitting Torrey Smith for a first down. Then he targets Smith again deep which draws a pass interference penalty. The flag looked questionable and the ball looked uncatchable to me but I’m not the ref. A 15-yard run by Clement, the first of his NFL career, tied the game. Tie game, 21-21.

Jenkins got called for pass interference on a deep pass to Beckham Jr. The Giants took over in the red zone but had to settle for a field goal with 3:08 to play. Giants lead, 24-21.

The Eagles relied on their running game to get into filed goal range. Good runs from Smallwood and Blount moved them down the field. A facemask penalty from Jeffery moved the Eagles back from the 31 to the 46. A completion to Ertz put it back at the 34. Wentz’s pass to Jeffery on third down was off target. The Eagles’ 46-yard attempt is ... good! Clutch kick. Tie game, 24-24.

The Giants can’t get anything going on a late drive. They have to punt.

Eagles take over with 13 seconds remaining on their own 38. Wentz hits Jeffery along the sideline to set up a 61-yard field goal attempt. Elliot’s kick is ... GOOD! IT’S GOOD! IT’S GOOD!!! IT’S GOOD!!!!! Eagles win, 27-24.

Can’t stop watching.

I still can’t believe that just happened.

I still can’t believe Jake Elliott, a rookie kicker who got waived during final cuts just a few weeks ago, hit a 61-yard game-winning field to allow the Eagles to beat the New York Giants.



What. a. KICK.

Let’s relive the moment in all of its glory.


(Joe Buck and Troy Aikman)


(Via SportsRadio 94WIP)






That was a game the Eagles easily could have lost after allowing 24 points in the fourth quarter. The Eagles could’ve dropped to 2-1 and we all would’ve been talking about how everyone needs to be fired.

Not today. A rookie kicker saved the day.

Jake Elliott should never have to buy a beer in Philly again.

Subject: Eagles vs Giants: Six winners and three losers

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Run wild!

The Eagles extended a three game home winning streak over the Giants on Sunday, winning 27-24. Despite the Eagles winning the game, there are more winners and losers when you look deeper into it.


The Eagles

It wasn't pretty, but whew, they pulled it out. After a day where Carson Wentz looked off his game, the team was able to rally and overcome a rocky fourth quarter. The Eagles improve to 2-1, with both wins coming in the conference and division. They'll be in the drivers seat of the NFC East for at least a week regardless of what Dallas does tomorrow.

Jake Elliott

Apologies for misspelling his name, but rookie kicker Jake Elliott is forever immortalized in Philadelphia history. Replace the Rocky statue with Elliott’s pose after nailing a 61-yard field goal as time expired. Elliott missed a 52-yard field goal earlier in the game and a 30-yard field goal last week. It’s fair to believe that Doug Pederson’s play calling in-between the 40s was influenced by the uncertainty at kicker, but when called upon Elliott nailed the biggest kick of his young career and likely ended the Giants’ season.

Alshon Jeffery

Janoris Jenkins effectively shut down Alshon Jeffery when the Eagles went to him on third down, but sometimes one play is all it takes to change a game. Jeffery’s big catch to set up the field goal attempt from Elliott was clutch. Those are the kind of plays you need from a No. 1 receiver.

The Eagles’ run game

After two weeks of an inability to effectively run the ball, the Eagles ground game exploded for 193 yards and two touchdowns. LeGarrette Blount had a few early long runs and Wendell Smallwood helped the Eagles move the ball late as the Eagles averaged 4.9 yards per carry on the ground. If the Eagles can continue to run the ball somewhat as well as they did today, the play-action passing game that has effectively opened receivers deep will be lethal.

Rasul Douglas

Douglas was easily the Eagles’ best cornerback today, as the rookie defender notched his first career interception and made good plays in coverage all game long.

Odell Beckham Jr.

I think we can all agree that we hate Odell Beckham Jr., but the Giants offense is nothing without him. That was evidenced today as New York couldn't get anything going until OBJ got going. Beckham held out earlier in the offseason to secure a new contract and after a showing like the one he had today, his case for the largest skill position player contract only grows.



With an overall record of 0-3, and two of their loses being to division rivals, should effectively end the Giants season. The Giants suffered their fourth straight loss in Philadelphia dating back to 2014 and the offense couldn't get out of it’s own way. Twice the Giants found themselves in the red zone and twice they turned the ball over on downs. Put a fork in this team.


The Eagles lost Jordan Hicks, Jason Peters and Fletcher Cox this week. This was after coming into the game with Chris Maragos and Malcolm Jenkins as the team’s starting safeties. Maybe Week 4 byes aren't bad? OK, but seriously, the Eagles could really benefit if the injury bug would leave the building.

Eli Manning

Manning looked awful when the Giants’ offensive line gave him time to throw deep. Between the Rasul Douglas interception and various other deep throws, you can tell Eli’s deep ball is losing any effectiveness it had. Man, OBJ really did extend Eli’s career.

The Rrrrrrrrrrrraiders.

After a busy Sunday of Week 3 football action, the night is set to end with a game between the Oakland Raiders (2-0) and Washington Redskins (1-1).

The Raiders beat the Titans on the road in Week 1 before killing the Jets at home in Week 2. Washington lost to the Eagles in the first week (obviously) before winning a road game against the Rams.

The Eagles will be rooting for a Washington loss in this one. Philly will still be first in the division even if Washington wins, due to the head-to-head tiebreaker, but the ideal situation is that the NFC East race isn’t closer than it needs to be. A loss here would drop Washington to 1-2. The Raiders are a pretty formidable team so they might be able to make it happen.

Subject: Darren Sproles Injured: Eagles running back reportedly suffered broken arm

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Well, this sucks.

Eagles running back Darren Sproles suffered a broken arm during Philadelphia’s 27-24 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

That’s ... not good. Yikes.

Sproles is obviously a key player to this Eagles team. He provides a spark in the run game and he’s a weapon as a receiver. He’s still one of the best punt returners in the league as well.

The Eagles were thin on running back talent to begin with. Sproles being out is a significant loss.

It seems like the Eagles might have to place Sproles, who is expected to retire after this season, on injured reserve. There’s always the possibility of bringing him back off the IR list later in the season, but he’d still be out eight weeks at the very least.

Perhaps the Eagles will look to call up Byron Marshall from the practice squad. The other three healthy running backs on Philadelphia’s active roster include LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement.

In other injury (non) news, there’s no real update on Jordan Hicks and Fletcher Cox. Both players left the Eagles-Giants game early on Sunday and didn’t return. Hicks had his ankle wrapped and seemed to suggest he’d be OK. Cox was walking on his own power after the game but didn’t give an update on his status.
