Little has been revealed regarding the specifics of the injury, as coach Joe Vitt wouldn’t initially even tell reporters which one of Sproles’ hands was broken. Though he hasn’t been used much in the Saints’ rushing attach this season, Sproles has played a pivotal role in the team’s passing a return games. The 29-year-old has rushed for 117 yards on 26 carries while catching 39 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns.
