Standing at his locker, Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford expressed some doubt that he would be able to play this Thursday against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving due to a shoulder injury he suffered two weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins.
"If (my shoulder) continues to progress and get better, I'd like to be out there," Bradford said, "but ultimately it's going to be in the coaches and trainers hands."
Bradford returned to practice Monday, and took part in practice Tuesday, meaning he has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol.
Now the questions surrounds the sprain in his non-throwing shoulder, an injury even Bradford isn't sure how long will take to heal.
Original reports said Bradford would miss Weeks 11 and 12 and it seems like we're heading in that direction. A Pro Football Talk report also pointed to the Mark Sanchez getting the start on Thanksgiving against the Lions, saying Sanchez is taking the first team reps. The Eagles offense is struggling, so neither QB - if named the starter - is really that great of a fantasy option.
