Report – Sam Bradford Out Next Two Games
According to a report, you wont see Sam Bradford until after your leftovers from Thanksgiving are long gone.
Eagles reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks has the news over at NJ.com, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Bradford hurt his left shoulder and suffered a concussion in the same hit on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. He left the game and did not return.
Interestingly enough, it is the separated left-shoulder injury to Bradford that is keeping him sidelined for multiple games. According to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Bradford has not passed the concussion protocol put forth by the league and has not practiced all week.
The Eagles play twice in the span of ten days due to a Thanksgiving contest in Detroit which will ultimately prevent Bradford from getting enough time needed to recover from both injuries.
Without Bradford, the Eagles will turn to Mark Sanchez who came in relief of Bradford's injury on Sunday and seemingly ran the offense at a better pace throwing for 156 yards in the loss. Sanchez did have a costly interception in the end zone to a double-covered Miles Austin that allowed Miami to maintain their lead.
If Sanchez comes in and shines against inferior opponents, he could wind up stealing the starting job from Bradford who has been average on the season. His 10 interceptions in nine games this season is tied for fifth in the NFL.
