"It was a big step," Bradford said on Sunday after the team's first practice of training camp.
Bradford participated in full team drills for the first time as a member of the Eagles on Sunday, taking every snap with the first-team offense.
The path to Sunday's practice has been a long one for Bradford, who has torn his ACL in each of the past two seasons. After taking 27 reps with the first-team offense, however, Bradford said he felt 100%.
"To just get out there and know my knee can do it, it was a really big step today," Bradford said. "Everything felt good."
One noticeable difference - Bradford was not sporting the bulky knee brace he did during OTAs, a decision he debated with team doctors. The story went on to say the rust of not playing for over a year was clearly there with Bradford. The usually accurate quarterback missed a few open throws, and was the only quarterback to be picked off during the close to two-hour practice.
