The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to give Wendell Smallwood a bigger role with Darren Sproles out for the season.

Smallwood had 12 carries for 71 yards in Week 3.

"I think Wendell on third down specifically, Corey as well, they're going to have to step up and assume that role," Doug Pederson said.

Smallwood is a second-year back out of West Virginia who can run between the tackles and off the edge with the potential of being a good receiving option.
