Sprinkle addressed his injury on Twitter. He wrote, “First thing first, thank God I am here to see another day. Time was invested, endless hours of work was put in and sacrifices were made in order to have the best season I could have. Unfortunately, God has another plan for me. It left me lost, confused, hurt and discouraged. The endless support from everyone is greatly appreciated, and I can’t respond to everyone, but I want you to know that I am thankful. I have faced adversity my whole life, and this one hit me deep. I have faith I will attach rehab like no one else would and return to the game that I love with a vengeance. I love my team, my brothers and my family, and I know WE are still going to have a great season.”
