Eagles Injury Updates: Todd Herremans, Jason Kelce, Darren Sproles

By on 10/29/2014 01:09:00 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles have a few key injuries as they prepare to face the Houston Texans in Houston on Sunday.

Running back Darren Sproles was at practice Tuesday and felt close on Sunday, but his status won't be clear until he gets more full practices.

Guard Todd Herremans was injured in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but was at practice on Tuesday, lining up in his normal position. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur described Herremans' condition as "fine" after practice, though it's worth noting that Eagles coaches have downplayed various injuries all season. Herremans' status will continue to be evaluated throughout the week.

Center Jason Kelce was also a participant in Tuesday's practice. Kelce hasn't played since September 21st and has been trying to return from a sports hernia surgery. He was limited in practice last week, but his reps with the first string could indicate a start on Sunday.

Safety Nate Allen and cornerback Brandon Boykin sat out of practice on Tuesday with minor hamstring injuries. Boykin was described as "day to day" by defensive coordinator Bill Davis.

The Eagles will practice in pads on Wednesday after a light Tuesday practice.
