Interim coach Joe Vitt revealed the injury after Monday’s practice, though he wouldn’t say which hand was hurt. Sources says it’s Sproles’ upper left hand near the wrist. Sproles set an NFL record with 2,696 all-purpose yards last season and is a vital part of the Saints’ offense and special teams. He ranks second on the team in receiving (39 receptions, 323 yards, four touchdowns), third in rushing (26 carries, 117 yards) and handles both kickoffs (averaging 28.7 yards per return) and punts (a 6.6-yard average). “We have pretty good running backs around here and this is part of the National Football League with injuries,” Vitt said. “It’s next man up. We will miss Darren Sproles, but this is going to be a great opportunity for some of our other running backs to receive some more reps and show what they can do.” The greater concern is who will take over the returns.

Thats why x-factors have their name, because the players are often times streaky, and not consistent and reliable every week.
