Eagles RB Darren Sproles leaves with rib injury

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Eagles RB Darren Sproles injured his ribs on a punt return late in the second quarter and did not come back out of the locker room after halftime.

Without both Sproles and Ryan Mathews, the Eagles had to turn to backups Kenjon Barner and Wendell Smallwood.

Fantasy Impact: 

As we stated in the news piece about Mathews, the injury to both players could mean Smallwood and Barner get a big workload in Week 12 against the Packers. Mathews' injury is a MCL sprain and he seems likely to miss some time. Smallwood had a big game back in Week 3 against the Steelers and would likely get more of a workload without Mathews and Sproles in the lineup.
