It was originally reported that Sproles suffered a broken arm against the Giants that would require surgery to fix. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sproles will have surgery on the arm before undergoing the knee procedure.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the injury to reporters on Monday and said Sproles will be out for the remainder of the 2017 season. But in July, Sproles told reporters that he meant to finish his career with the Eagles and that he had two more productive seasons in him. I was like, 'Nah, I can't.

There's no telling whether or not Sproles will be back in 2018. He ranks No. 8 all-time in career all-purpose yards. LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood received the bulk of the carries in his absence Sunday.
