Darren Sproles injury update: Fantasy status on hold indefinitely

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Darren Sproles has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles (hand) has been officially ruled out for Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. Sproles suffered a broken hand and did not practice at all this week as he had surgery. He is expected to miss anywhere from four to eight weeks.

Sproles has 26 carries for 117 yards on the ground, and added 39 catches for 323 yards and four TDs.

Fantasy Impact: Massive loss to the Saints and fantasy owners. Sproles wasn't doing much on the ground, but he was a PPR stud, racking up catches and YAC.

Pierre Thomas will attempt to step up and was a hot waiver claim when this news broke. He's a decent flex play against the Eagles.
