Report: “No way” Sam Bradford plays next two weeks

AP

The speculation about Sam Bradford in Philadelphia has been day to day. But it appears to be a week to week situation.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, a source said there was “no way” the injured quarterback was playing the next two games.

That means Mark Sanchez would have the reins this week against the Buccaneers and on Thanksgiving against the Lions (pass the pie).

Bradford is in the concussion protocol, but the separated left shoulder is apparently the bigger issue at the moment.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said today he hadn’t gotten an update on the shoulder injury.

“I have not had that,” Kelly said. “So the concussion is the No. 1 thing. He can’t do anything until he’s cleared from his concussion.

With Bradford unavailable, Thad Lewis will back up Sanchez.

  1. You guys thought you hated Bradford at QB? Just wait until you get back to back games of the Sanchize.

  2. If he plays in the next two weeks, can Shorr-Parks be banished to a remote island that has no access to the outside world?

  3. Does anyone really see Bradford getting the $100 mill + contract he wants from any NFL team next year?

    Well the Eagles did give Vick a $100 mill contract after half a season which got the coach/gm fired the following year.

  4. If Bradford only misses two games this year that is more than OK with me, much less than everyone anticipated. I think this injury has less to do with Bradford being ‘glass’ and more to do with him getting absolutely crushed multiple times as a result of horrible offensive line play. I’d take a backup QB who has beaten Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in the playoffs over 99% of the other backups in the league

    =====================================

    It appears the concussion is the bigger issue at the moment.

  6. Please let this be Chip’s death knell. Hopefully Lurie won’t hire Andy Reid v3 after v1 and v2 crashed and burned.

  7. My first reaction is that with Tampa Bay on deck and a Turkey-Day trip to Fords Field immediately following, Sanchez can probably guide this team to 1-1 or (bright side) 2-0, and Bradford can then return for the game at Foxborough when the team will really need a QB1. Then I laughed & laughed.

    What could possibly lead me to believe that Bradford is any better (or that Sanchez is any worse) than his counterpart? Beyond that, I got to thinking about the REAL counterpart: Foles is on the shelf in St Louis simultaneously as Bradford’s on the shelf in Philly; there’s not even a consolation of “See? They should have kept Foles”.

    There is really not much to like about the Philadelphia football club. Peeling off the layers of the onion only exascerbates more irritation to ones’ senses, especially “sight” and “common”.

  8. He was lucky to walk off the field. That was a picture perfect hit/tackle leading with his shoulder that McCain put on him.
