Coach Doug Pederson told reporters Monday that Sproles has a rib fracture, but he sounded optimistic that the 33-year-old would be able to suit up Monday night against the Green Bay Packers. Mathews will also try to get back after sustaining an MCL sprain in his right knee. After the game, he was spotted wearing a brace around that leg.
Elsewhere on the injury front: rookie right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who has been starting in place of the suspended Lane Johnson, is week-to-week with a sprained MCL. Allen Barbre is expected to kick out to right tackle with Stefen Wisniewski taking over at left guard in Vaitai's absence.
Cornerback Leodis McKelvin is in concussion protocol.
Pederson also announced that the team has signed receiver Paul Turner from the practice squad and released corner Aaron Grymes.
