News: Sproles (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona. Impact: First, the good news: After two days of limited practice, Sproles was a full participant Friday and seems like he has a very real chance of returning from his torn MCL earlier than expected. The bad news: the matchup against the Cardinals is brutal. Arizona's top-ranked run defense has not allowed any opposing runner to surpass 64 rushing yards in a game this season. Of course, Sproles' value lies more in his utility in the pass game.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. Impact: In Week 6, Sproles sustained a slight MCL tear to his left knee, which was expected to knock him out for at least two weeks. However, only a week-and-a-half later, he's logged a capped practice and is angling to play Sunday at Arizona. His activity level in drills will likely indicate whether or not active status is possible, but at the very least, he's now trending in the right direction.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles (knee) was present for practice Wednesday, CSN's Geoff Mosher reports. Impact: We'll have to see how Eagles classify his Wednesday participation, but per csnphilly.com, when asked if he'd be able to play this Sunday against the Cardinals, Sproles, who practiced Tuesday with a brace on the knee that he injured in Week 6, replied after the session, "the way, I'm feeling, yeah."(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles and linebacker Mychal Kendricks were among the injured players who practiced on Tuesday, though their status is uncertain for Sunday's game at Arizona. Impact: Sproles sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee in a 27-0 win over the New York Giants on Oct. 12. The injury appeared worse when he went down and didn't return, but coach Chip Kelly alleviated concerns when he said it wasn't serious before the team broke for the bye. "I'm fine," Sproles said. "I thought it was bad. I had an MRI and I feel pretty good." (STATS, 3:26pm)

News: Sproles (knee) returned to practice Tuesday. Impact: Sproles suffered a slight MCL tear heading into the Eagles' bye week, which apparently offered him ample treatment time to begin practice this week. While Tuesday's sessions are typically on the lighter side, it will still be interesting to monitor Sproles' participation level throughout the week. In any event, it's certainly encouraging to hear of Sproles being back on the field in advance of Sunday's game versus the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles (knee) suffered a slight MCL tear in his left knee and is expected to be out at least two weeks, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Sproles twisted his left knee during Sunday night's blowout win but was able to walk off the field under his own power. Nonetheless, the speedy running back required an MRI on Monday, when a slight MCL tear was revealed. Fortunately, the Eagles are entering their bye week, so although Sproles has been ruled out for at least two weeks, the best-case scenario would only result in him missing Philadelphia's Week 8 game against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles (knee) is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: While Sproles was able to walk off the field under his own power Sunday night, he was moving with a noticeable limp following a tackle that twisted his left knee awkwardly as he was brought to the ground. He'll have a week to recover in Week 7 with the Eagles on bye, but the MRI should provide clarity regarding his expected availability for the Week 8 matchup at Arizona.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles, who left Sunday's game with a knee injury at the end of the third quarter, said afterward that he will be alright, CSN Philadelphia's Geoff Mosher reports. Impact: The report adds that Sproles didn't appear to be nursing a limp on his way out of the locker room. He finished Sunday's contest with 39 yards and a touchdown on seven carries, but he surprisingly didn't catch any of his four targets, going a second straight game without a reception. With 32 carries and just 16 catches through six games, he's on track to record more of the former than the latter for the first time since 2011. Based on the early reports, Sproles stands a good chance to be ready for a Week 8 game in Arizona, after the Eagles enjoy a Week 7 bye.(RotoWire, )

News: Sproles left Sunday's game with a knee injury in the third quarter and is questionable to return, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Impact: Sproles walked off the field under his own power and only had a slight limp while heading off to the locker room. With a 27-0 at the end of three quarters, the Eagles are unlikely to take any chances.(RotoWire, )
