The Philadelphia Eagles are once again without their starting quarterback. Sam Bradford was injured in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins at Lincoln Financial Field.
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.
However, according to the CBS Sports broadcasters Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon, the X-Rays were negative on his left shoulder. At the moment, it’s not clear if he’ll return to the game.
With Bradford injured, the team goes back to Mark Sanchez, who re-signed with the team in the off-season. It appears like the tempo has picked up with the former USC Trojan in the game.
This isn’t the first time that Sanchez has had to step in for an Eagles injured signal-caller. 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.
Bradford gets hurt after a stipulation in the trade expired. The Eagles could have receive a third-round pick from the Rams, along with the 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick.
However, due to his playing time, the Birds to not get the additional pick.
