Things keep getting worse for the Saints. RB Darren Sproles underwent surgery for his broken hand and will be out for Monday’s game against the Eagles. Sproles will be re-evaluated next week to see if he’ll be able to play next week against the Falcons.
This will definitely be a big loss for the Saints, as they look to build a winning streak to save their season.
The Saints are last in the league in rushing yards after finishing 5th last year. The inability to run the ball has contributed to their lack of success this season, and this injury to Sproles may even make the running game even worse.
