Sprinkle (Achilles) will not take part in the Cowboys' joint practice with the Chargers on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Sprinkle missed a week of practice in the beginning of August with the injury, but he had been participating since his return.

Sprinkle was sidelined for a week after an Achilles issue flared up, but as expected, the injury wasn't severe and he's already back at practice.

Cowboys' Jeremy Sprinkle: Re-signs with Dallas
Sprinkle agreed to a one-year contract with the Cowboys on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
While Sprinkle played in nearly every game for a fourth straight year, the 2017 fifth-round pick was primary used as a blocker during the 2021 campaign and caught just three passes for 31 yards. With the release of Blake Jarwin, Sprinkle is elevated to the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart behind Dalton Schultz, though Sprinkle figures to continue serving mostly as a blocker in 2022....

Cowboys' Jeremy Sprinkle: Fills depth role in 2021
Sprinkle caught all three of his targets for 31 yards across 17 games this season.
While he played every game for the fourth straight year, Sprinkle was primarily used as a blocker for his snaps on offense, and all three of his grabs came in the final four weeks of the regular season. The 27-year-old tight end is a free agent this offseason, but if he returns to Dallas in 2022 he could see more opportunities as a receiver with Dalton Schultz also a free agent and Blake Jarwin having trouble staying healthy....

Cowboys' Jeremy Sprinkle: One grab in Saturday's win
Sprinkle caught his only target for 10 yards in Saturday's 51-26 win over the Eagles.
The tight end saw more than 20 snaps on offense for only the third time this season, and the reception also was his third of the year. He's provided solid depth for Dallas as a blocker, particularly while Blake Jarwin was sidelined, but with Jarwin off injured reserve to reclaim the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, Sprinkle isn't likely to get a chance to make an impact in the playoffs....

Cowboys' Jeremy Sprinkle: Two catches against Giants
Sprinkle caught both his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 21-6 win over the Giants.
The fifth-year tight end has passed Sean McKeon on the depth chart to take the No. 2 spot, playing 24 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday to McKeon's eight percent and seeing a larger role on special teams as well. Neither one has much fantasy value behind Dalton Schultz, but Sprinkle might get a red-zone look or two Week 16 if the Cowboys try to set him up for a revenge game against his former Washington club....
