Eagles' Lane Johnson expected to play Sunday; Sproles re-aggravates injury

PHILADELPHIA, PA - DECEMBER 13: Darren Sproles #43 of the Philadelphia Eagles runs behind the blocking of Lane Johnson #65 and Jason Kelce #62 against the Buffalo Bills on December 13, 2015 at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

PHILADELPHIA– UPDATE (Nov. 8, 9:00 a.m.): ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Sproles re-aggravated his hamstring injury in practice, and will now be out on Sunday.

The team is expecting RB Darren Sproles and T Lane Johnson to return to the lineup on Sunday when the Eagles host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.

Sproles, 33, has been out since Week 1 with a hamstring injury, after missing the majority of last season with a broken arm and torn ACL.

In his last healthy season in 2016, Sproles provided a dynamic threat out of the backfield and passing game, totaling 438 yards on the ground and another 427 through the air to go along with four scores.

Instead, Johnson was a participant at practice yesterday, and is expected to start against Dallas.
