The Philadelphia Eagles have learned the fate of quarterback Sam Bradford. According to the Philadelphia Daily News Eagles beat writer Les Bowen, Bradford has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder.

In basic terms, it’s a shoulder separation. It’s not clear how long Bradford will be out as Mark Sanchez re-gains the reigns of the Eagles offense.

There’s a chance that Bradford could fight through this injury. Also, reportedly on the play, he also suffered a concussion, which was not mentioned during the CBS telecast against the Miami Dolphins.

Bradford, who has played OK today, was injured on a play, in which he was tackled by a Dolphins defender. It looked like he may have separated his shoulder as he was going to the locker room with the Eagles trainers by his side.

However, according to the CBS Sports broadcasters Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon, the X-Rays were negative on his left shoulder.

With Bradford injured, the team had to go with back up Sanchez, who re-signed with the team in the off-season. Last season, he stepped in for Nick Foles when he suffered a broken collarbone.

Sanchez, even when Foles returned, finished the season. In the off-season, it was Foles who was traded for Bradford, along with draft picks to the St. Louis Rams.

Before Bradford left the game, he had 236 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins. Sanchez came in and had a 156 yards and a key interception late that they gave the Dolphins a 20-19 win at Lincoln Financial Field.
