Found November 17, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
The Saints have RB Darren Sproles listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. “Whatever the doctors tell me,” Sproles said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “They have the final decision.” Sproles has been sidelined with a fractured hand, but there have been some indications that he could be returning in the near future. “We are trying to get the swelling out,” said Sproles. “That’s the main thing. But it is going to swell because it is trying to heal.” Sproles was able to put in a good week of practice, but the fact that his wrist is still swollen makes it unlikely that he’ll be available to play on Sunday. We’ll have updates leading up to the game on Sunday.
