According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles running back Darren Sproles said he expects to return to game action this week against the Houston Texans.

If true, that's obviously great news for Philadelphia. Sproles has been very valuable to the Eagles as both an offensive weapon and a punt returner.
Sproles has been dealing with an MCL sprain that he suffered in the team's Week 6 win over the New York Giants. The 31-year-old veteran returned to practice last week but was limited and ruled questionable on the final injury report. Sproles' status for the Eagles-Cardinals game was a game-time decision but he was ultimately ruled inactive.
Sproles was reportedly a full participant in Tuesday's light practice.

In other injury news, starting center Jason Kelce took first team repetitions at center on Tuesday. Kelce noted that he expects to be a game-time decision this week.
C @Jkelce thinks he'll be a game-time decision: I'm going to push it this week and see where I'm at. #PHIvsHOU— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) October 28, 2014
