02:36 PM ET 11.02 | The Saints will be without running back Darren Sproles on Monday night against the Eagles. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports Sproles has a hand injury that required surgery and will not play on Monday Night Football. It's unclear how long the injury, which only popped up this week, will keep him sidelined. The 2-5 Saints could use as much help as they can get to keep their season alive. Sproles has 117 yards rushing and 323 yards receiving on the season.

It's not like Sproles is tearing it up this year. Hopefully the Saints will have enough to beat the Eagles.

He's ranked 66th overall in fantasy.He's doing better than a lot of premiere backs. He's their number one option on pass plays out of the backfield.

They've become a one dimensional offense this season.
