PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21 (UPI) – Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson relayed Monday that running back Ryan Mathews is day-to-day.

Pederson also said that Darren Sproles suffered a fractured rib in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Mathews, 29, is dealing with an MCL sprain and was wearing a brace on his right knee after exiting the locker room Sunday.

He was also seen limping after exiting the stadium. He suffered the injury on the first play of the second quarter. Sproles exited the game before halftime after being hit during a punt return.

Wendell Smallwood stepped in for the duo and provided 79 yards from scrimmage on 17 touches. He could be in for an increased workload in the Eagles’ Week 12 Monday Night Football matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Smallwood is nothing more than a boom-or-bust RB2 in deeper leagues and a risky flex play for next week.
