Eagles hope to have Sam Bradford Week 13

NJ.com - [Full Article]

On a three-game losing streak and headed to face the 10-1 New England Patriots, Sunday, the Eagles and head coach Chip Kelly hope to have quarterback Sam Bradford back in action.

Bradford suffered both a concussion and a sprained AC join in his left shoulder during the team's 20-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Nov. 15. He's missed the past two games, blowout losses to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 45-17; and the Detroit Lions, 45-14.

"We'll see how he is (Tuesday) and then Wednesday will be the key day,'' Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said of Bradford, at his Monday press conference at the Nova Care Complex. "He threw a little bit in Detroit (Thanksgiving Day), but obviously wasn't ready. We hope he's progressed.''

Fantasy Impact: 

Bradford did some limited work a week ago in preparation for the Lions game, but was among the team's inactives. Bradford had played his best football as an Eagle just before the injury. He completed 69.4 percent of his passes for 295 yards with the game-winning overtime touchdown pass for a 103.4 rating in a 33-27 win over the Dallas Cowboys. And was 19-for-25 (76 percent) for 236 yards with a touchdown and a 118.1 rating before getting hurt against the Dolphins, the story said.
