Darren Sproles Injury: Updates on Saints Star’s Hand
“We’re going to have to have a few guys that pick up the slack,” offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael said. “Chris has been patient. He’s been great.

The Girls Camp will incorporate discussions on health, fitness, image and age-appropriate fashion and makeup. It is slated for July 31-Aug. 3 at San Diego State University in Michels home state and now, the Sproles familys hometown.

Saints RB Darren Sproles out vs. Eagles after hand surgery
“I’m sorry about Darren’s injury,” Cadet said. “But if my number is called, I’m here to step up and help the team.” Even with Sproles, the Saints rank last in the NFL in rushing yards. Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram are likely to continue getting the bulk of the carries, and Chris Ivory could finally get an expanded role. He led the team in rushing as a rookie in 2010, but hasn’t carried the ball at all this season. “We’re going to have to have a few guys that pick up the slack,” offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael said. “Chris has been patient. He’s been great. He’s been out at every practice and has given us his all, his best effort.
Eagles after hand surgery More Darren Sproles has a broken hand. (Jack Dempsey / AP) New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles has been ruled out of Monday nights game against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a hand fracture that required surgery. Saints interim coach Joe Vitt did not offer a clear time table for Sproles return but said the speedy, sure-handed back will be re-evaluated next week, as reported by Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune . Vitt also declined to reveal which hand Sproles had injured, saying only whatever hand you put down, you have a 50-50 chance of being right. The New Orleans run game has been virtually non-existent at times this season, often because Drew Brees and company are playing from behind. Sproles has only 26 carries on the season but is second on the team with 39 receptions and total offensive yardage (440). He also remains a threat on kick returns. Starter Pierre Thomas will continue to lead the way on Monday with disappointing second-round back Mark Ingram getting his usual 3-7 carries. Chris Ivory could also see action for the first time this season, Triplett reports.

Rashad Johnson loses part of his finger trying to tackle Darren Sproles in Cardinals’ loss at Saints
It wasnt a hard sell with the coaching staff or the front office. The Saints knew they needed someone to take over Bushs many roles. Our feeling at that time was that a lot of the things we liked to do with Reggie, we thought we would feel very comfortable doing with Darren, New Orleans coach Sean Payton said. The Saints went out and offered Sproles a four-year contract that averages $3.5 million per season (and a much friendlier cap number than Bushs). There were other teams interested, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers , who, at the very least, made some overtures toward Sproles, plus the Chargers wanted to keep him. But there was one big reason why Sproles was ticketed for no place other than New Orleans. I think his relationship with Drew Brees had a lot to do with Authentic Darren Sproles Jersey us getting him here, Payton said.
Darren Sproles returns to Kansas for his annual camp
He had surgery Sunday. The injury report says Rashad Johnson (finger), but that barely begins to describe the situation. The Cardinals safety had part of his left middle finger torn off during Sundays 31-7 loss to the Saints . According to the Arizona Republic, Johnson took off his glove after trying to tackle Darren Sproles on a punt return and saw part of his finger was still inside the glove. Doctors performed surgery on Sunday shaving the bone and repairing the digit but the risk of infection remains because the bone was exposed. The paper reports that he lost the tip of the finger, down to about the first knuckle. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Johnson is “day to day,” and could play Sunday against the Buccaneers depending on how fast it heals and Johnson’s pain tolerance. “It’s a little tip with stitches,” the coach said.
