Saints RB Darren Sproles checked for concussion after leaving game against Jets

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles has left the team's game against the New York Jets to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Sproles headed to the locker room early in the first quarter Sunday, and the Saints announced he was questionable to return.

It was unclear when the injury occurred, but Sproles had a 2-yard catch and was hit hard by Antonio Allen before leaving.

The versatile Sproles came into the game with 36 receptions, tying him with Kansas City's Jamaal Charles for the second-most among NFL running backs, four behind San Diego's Danny Woodhead.
