Veteran Eagles running back Darren Sproles has been once against ruled out for the team’s Week 8 contest against the Jaguars and will not be traveling with the team to London according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 35-year-old Sproles has not practice or played since injuring his hamstring in the season opener and there seems to be no timetable for his return.
In his absence, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood will continue to be featured in a backfield committee that also involves promising undrafted rookie Josh Adams. It would not be a surprise to see the Eagles make at least a minor move to shore up their running game before the trade deadline next Tuesday.
