Terrance Harris of The Times-Picayune confirms Darren Sproles' is uncertain to play in Week 10:
The Saints could be without running back Darren Sproles, who is the X-factor when opposing teams try to double up on receiving threats. Sproles was knocked out of Sunday's game with concussion-like symptoms and his status for Sunday remains unknown.
According to Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, Sproles underwent a concussion test on the sideline after being hit by Antonio Allen in the first quarter upon catching a screen pass.

Sproles’ absence will definitely impact New Orleans offense and special teams, as he is instrumental to both.
Prior to the contest against New York, the nine-year veteran had rushed 30 times for 118 yards and a touchdown, caught 36 passes for 366 yards and another score, plus returned 26 total kicks and punts for 336 yards.
