Snap counts: Darren Sproles gets double the number of other backs

Darren Sproles didn't just play more than the Eagles' other running backs. He doubled their combined snap total in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Arrowhead Stadium. 

Sproles played 50 of 72 snaps (69 percent) Sunday, while Wendell Smallwood played just 14 (19 percent), LeGarrette Blount played six and Corey Clement got in for one. 

This is the second week in a row to start the season that Sproles has led the Eagles' running backs in snaps. But last week there wasn't such a big disparity — he played 33 to Blount's 23. 

Against the Chiefs, Sproles was also the back that got the bulk of the work. He had 12 touches, while Smallwood and Blount combined for just four. Sproles had 10 rushing attempts for 48 yards and caught two passes for 30 yards. 

It's clear Sproles is on the field so much because of his versatility. He can run the ball, catch the ball and — perhaps more importantly — is solid in pass protection. 

Meanwhile, Carson Wentz and his entire offensive line played all 72 snaps. Jason Peters, who left the opener after one half with a groin injury, made it through Sunday afternoon. 

Rookie Mack Hollins picked up 17 snaps in his second career game and had his first three catches. 

On defense, second-round pick Rasul Douglas, who was inactive in the opener, played 39 of 53 total snaps (74 percent). Douglas was expected to have a role and was needed even more after Rodney McLeod and Jaylen Watkins went down with hamstring injuries

McLeod played just 12 snaps before a hamstring injury forced him out of the game. Corey Graham took over and played the remaining 41. Patrick Robinson played 32 snaps and Watkins played 14 before his hamstring injury occurred. 

Malcolm Jenkins, Jalen Mills, Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham didn't leave the field, playing all 53 defensive snaps. 

As far as the defensive line rotation goes, Brandon Graham led the way with 38 snaps, followed by Vinny Curry (33), Derek Barnett (21) and Chris Long (20). 

In his first-career game, defensive tackle Elijah Qualls played nine snaps. He was filling in Sunday for fourth-stringer Destiny Vaeao, who was out with a wrist injury.

Eric Rowe tracker
We are keeping an eye on Rowe in New England all season. If he plays more than 50 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this season, that 2018 fourth-round pick the Eagles got in exchange for him will turn into a third-rounder. 

Week 1: 37 of 69 snaps
Week 2: 34 of 65 snaps

2017: 71 of 134 (52.985 percent). 

So far, so good.
