New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles was not listed on the team's injury report on Wednesday. Sproles injured a knee in a preseason loss last month to the New England Patriots. Sproles did not play in the team's final preseason game and had said that being ready for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins was his primary goal.
Fantasy Impact: This is a good sign for fantasy owners counting on Sproles this weekend. He had been practicing on a limited basis because of the knee injury but it sounds like he's ready to go on Sunday. Sproles is a versatile back with added value in PPR leagues. He figures to be a solid No. 2 RB back this weekend against Washington.
