The Eagles did an independent study on the likelihood of ACL re-injuries prior to acquiring Sam Bradford.

The research concluded that football players have a 10-12 percent chance of re-injury. That gave the Eagles enough confidence to trade away their starting quarterback and a second-round pick for the right to pay Bradford $13 million this season. Chip Kelly pointed to Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as quarterbacks who have rebounded from serious injuries. Bradford is available in the 11th round of fantasy drafts because he's "injury prone," an idea Kelly does not believe in. "Everybody in the NFL is 100 percent injury prone," he said.

A source tells Sam Bradford (ACL) should be ready to go when Eagles training camp opens Aug. 2.

Bradford didn't participate in full-team drills this spring, sending media and fans into a tizzy. They failed to consider that perhaps the Eagles were just playing it safe with a guy that tore his left ACL for the second time in the 2014 preseason.'s source says Bradford is now "looking great" and is expected to participate in 11-on-11s right at the start of camp. He's a great risk/reward pick in Round 11 as the leader of an offense that will put crooked numbers on the board no matter who is under center.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports contract-year QB Sam Bradford plans to play out the final year of his deal.

It's a smart move by Bradford, whose value is probably as low as it's been as he comes off back-to-back ACL surgeries. He also played in one of the league's worst offenses in St. Louis and now gets to play under quarterback-friendly Chip Kelly. It's an opportunity for him to not only rehab his stock, but also maximize it. With a solid, healthy season, Bradford could command an Andy Dalton deal.

Coach Chip Kelly said Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are openly competing for the starting quarterback job.

If all goes according to plan, Bradford will win the job with ease. The Eagles dealt Nick Foles and a second-round pick for Bradford and his $13 million salary. He's not going to sit behind Sanchez if healthy. But Bradford has yet to participate in any 11-on-11 drills with his new team, allowing Sanchez to take all the first-team reps. Sanchez has reportedly looked impressive in his second year in Kelly's system. The plan is for Bradford (torn ACL) to be cleared for the start of camp.

Sources tell NFL Network the Eagles have had preliminary contract talks with Sam Bradford.

Bradford is entering the final year of his rookie contract. It shouldn't be a surprise the Eagles are interested in an extension after giving up their starting quarterback (Nick Foles) and a second-round pick for the right to pay Bradford $13 million this season. It's also not a surprise the two sides haven't made any "real progress" as Bradford's latest knee rehab appears to be going rocky.

Sam Bradford (ACL) said if he's not ready for 11-on-11 drills by training camp it means "something has gone terribly wrong."

Bradford has been limited to 7-on-7 work during OTAs. Training camp opens on August 2, giving Bradford about six weeks to recover. The injury-prone Bradford has appeared in just seven games since the start of 2013.

Sam Bradford (ACL) remained limited to 7-on-7 work Tuesday.

Unlike fellow ACL patient Carson Palmer, Bradford hasn't graduated to 11-on-11 work yet. There have also been whispers that he remains hobbled and is limping around -- observations that have been discounted by other reporters. When asked if Bradford will be ready for 11-on-11 when training camp opens, Chip Kelly said, "God, we hope so."

During a Tuesday visit to Eagles OTAs, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora described Sam Bradford (ACL surgeries) as "still hobbled," and noted that Bradford did very little work during team drills.

Meanwhile, Mark Sanchez strung together another impressive practice. Bradford is reportedly donning a "large brace on his leg," and is "limited in his ability to work on the field." La Canfora says to "hold off on inking Bradford in" as the Eagles' Week 1 starter. La Canfora wrote that Bradford "doesn't appear all that close to being ready to play an actual game." While Bradford remains the favorite, it's become increasingly clear that the Eagles' quarterback job will be open to a true competition entering training camp.

Sam Bradford (ACL surgeries) looks "a little more mobile" during the Eagles' current set of spring workouts.

Some Eagles observers were concerned with Bradford when offseason workouts began, but his on-field movement has progressed and his "throws were mostly sharp." Per beat writer Jeff McLane, Bradford "still couldn’t definitively say that he would be 100 percent ready for the start of training camp." Bradford remains a favorite target of ours for late-round quarterback drafters.

Sam Bradford (ACL) took part in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday.

This has been the plan for the past several weeks. Bradford rotated first-team reps with Mark Sanchez before sitting out team drills. Questions have arisen over the state of Bradford's surgically-repaired left knee, but he's still making enough progress to suggest he'll be ready for training camp. The Eagles have staked a ton on Bradford's shaky health.
Jun 2 - 1:28 PM

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sam Bradford's surgically repaired left knee doesn't appear "remotely close" to full health.

It's our fourth Bradford post of the day. This is just reporter Jeff McLane's take, but he believes "the specter of (Mark) Sanchez under center (in Week 1) becomes more and more of a reality" every day that Bradford's rehab drags on. Neither Bradford nor coach Chip Kelly has attached a date to Bradford's return, though both are trying to project confidence that he'll be ready for training camp. McLane reports Bradford was "clearly favoring" his left leg in Thursday's practice. Bradford has the potential to be a fantasy bargain this season, but he needs to get his health in order over the next two months.

Asked Thursday whether he'd be ready for Week 1, Sam Bradford (ACL) passed on making a guarantee.

"I think as long as we continue to progress and we don't have any setbacks, I feel very comfortable with where my knee is at right now," Bradford said. We can understand why Bradford wouldn't guarantee he'll be ready to go, but it's still mildly notable. His words came the same day the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he's still walking with a "pronounced limp." Bradford "scaled back" his OTAs participation a few weeks ago, but participated in individual drills Thursday. Coach Chip Kelly believes he could be ready for 7-on-7s next week.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Sam Bradford (ACL) was walking with a "pronounced limp" on Thursday.

Bradford and the Eagles have continued to insist that he's progressing on schedule, but this is a player whose health can never be taken for granted. Bradford will supposedly resume 7-on-7 work next week. Coach Chip Kelly has declined to put a timetable on Bradford's return to full health, but it's clear the team's expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp.

Sam Bradford (ACL) is expected to resume 7-on-7 work next week.

Bradford's rehab has been a hot topic, but there's no reason to believe he'd had any complications. He'll be a full 12 months removed from his latest tear when training camp opens and should be a full go then. At the controls of Chip Kelly's extremely passer-friendly scheme and armed with a soft early-season schedule, Bradford is an excellent late-round QB target.
