Philadelphia Eagles running back and return man Darren Sproles will miss at least one game after he was diagnosed with a slight MCL tear in his left knee.

Sproles is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. With the Eagles on a bye in Week 7 the team will be without him for a match-up against Arizona before potentially getting him back for a Week 9 game against Houston.

The Eagles are 5-1 on the season and will play it safe with Sproles. On the season the 31-year-old had 32 attempts for 211 yards and three touchdowns. He also added 16 receptions for 198 yards receiving.
