Eagles Injury Update: Darren Sproles reaches milestone vs. Jets, then leaves game with injury


Darren Sproles moved into fifth place all-time in NFL all-purpose yards. 

And then he got hurt. 

In the third quarter, Sproles took a quick trip to the blue medical tent and then went to the locker room. He has a quad injury and is questionable to return. 

Just before the injury, Sproles passed Tim Brown to move into fifth place in career all-purpose yards. 

Here’s how it stands now: 

Jerry Rice: 23,546 
Brian Mitchell: 23,330 
Walter Payton: 21,803 
Emmitt Smith: 21,564 
Darren Sproles: 19,684
Tim Brown: 19,682 

Sproles, 36, has had a pretty remarkable career. The only player above him in all-purpose yards that isn’t in the Hall of Fame is Brian Mitchell. Sproles will have an interesting case eventually.
