The New Orleans' Saints all-everything offensive weapon will miss at least one game with a knee injury.

The New Orleans Saints will be down a key playmaker for at least one preseason game, as running back and return specialist Darren Sproles injured his knee against the Patriots, and won't play in New Orleans' upcoming game against Jacksonville:

The extent and nature of the injury is unknown at this time. Upon joining the Saints last season, Sproles appeared in all 18 games for New Orleans in 2011 as a hybrid running back and receiver, earning a combined 1,313 yards rushing and receiving, as well serving as both a punt and kickoff returner for the team.

Since being drafted by San Diego in 2005, Sproles has appeared in at least 15 games a season in six years.
