Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is out of the league’s concussion protocol, but it remains to be seen if he’ll be back in the starting lineup on Thanksgiving.
Bradford is also dealing with a left shoulder injury and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Tuesday that the team isn’t likely to have a decision about whether Bradford or Mark Sanchez will start against the Lions until Wednesday. Bradford returned to practice on Monday, but Shurmur explained that session and Tuesday’s practice will be too light to make a determination about his readiness to play.
Shurmur did say Bradford looked good on Monday. Bradford had been playing pretty well before getting hurt, and at this point in the season if there's any way Bradford can go he'll likely get the call given the Eagles struggles with Mark Sanchez under center.

Week 12 at Detroit
It wasn't a great performance for Mark Sanchez last week, as he threw three interceptions despite 261 yards and two TDs. Sanchez is a much better fantasy option in leagues where interceptions aren't negative points, but that said, he leaves a lot of fantasy points on the field with poor decision making.
This week, it's a nice matchup against the Lions, who are 27th in allowing fantasy points to QBs despite playing pretty well against Aaron Rodgers and Darek Carr the last two weeks. Sanchez is down our list as more of a QB2 option as a result. While the chances are pretty good Sanchez will start, it's not out of the question as of Wednesday morning that Sam Bradford could get the start. He's cleared the concussion protocol, but a lingering shoulder injury will likely keep him out. However, that's not official and it could end up a game-time call.
