Saints HC Vitt "very encouraged" by Darren Sproles

The New Orleans Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles, who missed the past two games with a broken hand, returned to practice on Wednesday. Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said Sproles "looked good" at practice, although he was limited.

"I'm very, very encouraged with Darren," Vitt said."

Fantasy Impact: 

Barring a setback, Sproles should play against the Raiders in Week 11. Sproles should return to his role as the Saints' most valuable fantasy RB, though it's not clear how this will impact the snaps/touches of Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory given Ivory's stellar play in the last two games. Thomas led the team with 50 snaps, but saw the fewest touches (14) in the last two games.
