There was an old friendly face on the practice field at Angel Stadium in Southern California on Wednesday afternoon. Darren Sproles was back with his teammates. On injured reserve with a broken forearm and torn ACL (he suffered both on the same play), the veteran running back has been rehabbing in his home of San Diego but joined the Eagles for practice this week. In a short video preview retweeted by the Eagles on Thursday, Sproles hinted toward what his future might hold. "I don't have to play next year, but I'm leaning towards coming back," Sproles said. "I can't end like this." Sproles, 34, will become a free agent after this season, so the Eagles would need to re-sign him if they want him in 2018. It might seem unwise to sign a running back who will be 35 when next season starts, but Sproles has defied aging so far.
