Eagles expect back RB Darren Sproles; RB Kenjon Barner out

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Running back Darren Sproles will be back when the Eagles host the Giants on Thursday Night Football.

Kenjon Barner, who replaced Spoles in Sunday's 27-26 loss to the Ravens, is out. And offensive lineman Allen Barbre, well, his status seems to be up in the air.

Sproles, who missed the loss to the Ravens while he was in concussion protocol, has been cleared according to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

"He's good to go,'' Pederson, who also ruled out Barner with a hamstring injury, said. "(Barner) is going to miss the game. Being Thursday night, he's not going to make back.''

Related players: Ryan Mathews, Byron Marshall

Fantasy Impact:

The Eagles have missed Sproles in the passing game as well as on punt returns. He'll also serve as a change of pace back, although Ryan Mathews is coming off an impressive performance against the Ravens. Sproles could take away carries from Byron Marshall.

QUESTIONABLE

REDSKINS

Fantasy Impact:

For the Panthers, QB Cam Newton and WR Kelvin Benjamin are questionable. We reported earlier today that Newton is expected to play despite the tag. Benjamin practiced fully on Saturday which should be a good sign he'll be a go. For the Redskins, Jordan Reed is questionable. After playing last week, Reed should be OK to play on Monday night. Having Vernon Davis as a handcuff would be an ideal situation for fantasy owners, just in case.

The Ravens are parting ways with a potential future Hall of Famer.

Baltimore waived kick returner Devin Hester on Tuesday, one day after the team's loss to the Patriots.

Hester joined the Ravens on a one-year, $4 million deal just one week before the season opener and three months after being cut by the Falcons.

Eagles place RB Wendell Smallwood on IR, promote RB Byron Marshall

Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 9:48am

Philly.com - [Full Article]

The Eagles promoted running back Byron Marshall from the practice squad to take Wendell Smallwood’s spot on the 53-man roster.

Smallwood was placed on injured reserve Monday with a knee injury. Marshall, a former Oregon standout, spent the offseason and preseason with the Eagles and has been on practice squad all year.

Darren Sproles is in the league-mandated concussion protocol, leaving the Eagles even thinner at running back. Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner are the top only other running backs on the roster, so Marshall could play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens if Sproles has not recovered from the concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

Mathews figures to get the bulk of the work but the Eagles have used as many as four RBs in games this year. Marshall likely won't get enough work to warrant a start in just about any format.

Fantasy Impact:

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett was limited all week at practice with an ankle and shoulder injury. We think Bennett should be able to play, but he’s not fully healthy and it’s showing in his production.
