Mike Triplett reports that Saints RB Darren Sproles will miss Monday night’s game against the Eagles after he underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his hand. This is obviously terrible news for the Saints, as Sproles has been one of their best weapons since he signed with the team last year. Head coach Joe Vitt wouldn’t commit to a timetable for Sproles’ return, so this figures to be a week-to-week topic from here on. New Orleans will now look to Pierre Thomas to shoulder a larger workload, but this should be enough to get Chris Ivory, who has been routinely inactive this season, involved in their gameplan.
