Report: Sam Bradford to Miss Bucs Game, Possibly More
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports Sam Bradford is expected to miss Week 11, and quite possibly Week 12 with his shoulder and concussion injuries.
“I don’t have any information; I meet with the trainers after this every Monday,” Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said at his day after press conference today.
Mark Sanchez would start in Bradford’s place, Sanchez completed 14-of-23 passes for 156 yards and an end zone interception in Philadelphia’s 20-19, Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.
“Sanchez graded out well,” Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said today at his day after press conference. ” I mean, obviously the interception was a big down for him, but I think he made some other plays. I’m very confident in Mark Sanchez.”
Sanchez went 4-4 last season as the starter, throwing for 2418 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in nine appearances for the Eagles last season, he completed 64% of his passes – an Eagles single-season record.
Kelly was asked if there is going to be any changes with Sanchez starting instead of Bradford.
“I don’t think it’s much different,” Kelly said.
The Philadelphia Daily News’ Les Bowen reports Bradford suffered a grade II AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder.
“They just said he hurt his shoulder but he’s in concussion protocol, so that’s the thing we’ll deal with,” Kelly stated. “And then again, I’ll meet with [the trainers] after this meeting today, so I meet with [the trainers] probably around 2:00 or 2:30.”
