According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson of ESPN, the 12-year National Football League veteran also suffered a torn ACL on the same play.

An MRI is scheduled for Monday morning to gauge the extent of the injury. Through Week 3, he had rushed for 61 yards and caught seven passes for 71 yards. They lost Fletcher Cox and Jordan Hicks in the second quarter, but perhaps the biggest loss came on offense.

Sproles hinted in December of 2016 that 2017 would be his last season. After taking five running backs onto the active roster after training camp, Sproles' injury will land him next to rookie running back Donnel Pumphrey, who tore his hamstring on September 13 Thus, the Eagles are left with just three active backs. The 2005 fourth-round pick has been one of the most entertaining players with the ball in his hands.

"I feel like [after 2017] it will be time", Sproles said. Sproles has also served as the Eagles' primary punt returner since joining the team for the 2014-15 season. LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood received the bulk of the carries in his absence Sunday.

There's no telling whether or not Sproles will be back in 2018.
