EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - 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.
