Listen Live: Eagles vs Ravens, 7pm
Sam Bradford is expected to make his Eagles' debut tonight, which will be his first game action since tearing his ACL last preseason with the Rams. According to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly so far everything with Bradford has gone according to plan.
"I've just seen him make a logical progression," Kelly explained. "It's kind of what we anticipated; it’s the plan we had for him all along, that he would be ready to go at the start of preseason camp. He's done it and he’s had no ill effects. There's never been any day where we go, ‘Hey, his knee is bothering him, we need to take days off,’ or anything like that. I just think he's getting more comfortable in terms of what we're doing scheme‑wise."
While Bradford's health is something to keep an eye on tonight, he's a lock to make the Eagles roster along with Mark Sanchez, the battle between Tim Tebow and Matt Barkley will continue to be one to watch.
If a report by ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini is accurate that Chip Kelly is "increasingly excited" by Tim Tebow, and that Tebow will make the team if he avoids "major errors" then Barkley will need to have a very good showing tonight. Per Russini, Kelly has been most impressed by Tebow's running, and believes he could be valuable in short-yardage situations.
