Sam Bradford played one series in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, completing 3-of-5 passes for 35 yards.

It was an eventful series, with Bradford getting lit up twice in 11 plays. He took a low blow on a read option, drawing a roughing the passer penalty (a call that isn't supposed to be made). Both of Bradford's incompletions sailed high. It was only one series, but Bradford appeared in command of the offense. Hopefully he'll play closer to one half in next week's regular season dress rehearsal.

Sam Bradford is expected to make his Eagles' debut on Saturday night.

Bradford was held out of the preseason opener as a precaution, but he is expected to get his first game action since tearing his ACL last preseason. The sky is the limit for Bradford in Chip Kelly's offense as long as he can stay on the field. He is a low-risk upside pick at QB15 in terms of ADP.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski insists Sam Bradford is "absolutely not 100 percent."

Kempski has taken a strong stance that although Bradford has impressed with his passing, he has done almost nothing in terms of movement in camp. Kempski has taken Chip Kelly holding Bradford out of the preseason opener as a sign that the Eagles agree with his practice observations. "I think he can go," Kelly said of Bradford. "I know he's disappointed, but it's just my call."

The Philly Inquirer's Jeff McLane has heard the Eagles feel comfortable holding Sam Bradford out of their preseason opener because they are "ecstatic" about his play so far in training camp.

McLane believes it might be "time to sound the alarm" if Bradford is also held out of Philly's second preseason game, but it sounds like Bradford is missing Sunday's exhibition opener in large part because the Eagles have seen enough of him to know he's their answer at quarterback. Expect Mark Sanchez to start Sunday's day game, and for it to be mopped up by Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow.

Sam Bradford (knee) won't play in the Eagles' preseason opener Sunday.

Per beat writer Jeff McLane, Bradford "wasn't happy about it" when the Eagles decided to play it safe with their big offseason investment in the exhibition opener. Mark Sanchez will get the start against the Colts with Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow following him in the rotation. Coach Chip Kelly said Bradford will make his debut in the second preseason game.
Aug 14 - 11:54 AM

The Eagles have yet to decide if Sam Bradford will play in the preseason opener.

Bradford has been a full participant in training camp, but the Eagles could rest him as a precaution. "We haven’t discussed that yet," OC Pat Shurmur said. "We’ve got a couple of solid days of training left. Then we’ll regroup at that time." Mark Sanchez will start if Bradford is held out.

Sam Bradford (ACL) hasn't missed a single rep of training camp so far.

Per beat reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks, Bradford has shown "no signs" of the injury that sidelined him for the entire 2014 season. He's shown a "cannon for an arm" and the ball "flies out of his hand." Bradford is facing no competition from Mark Sanchez and brings tons of upside in the 10th or 11th round of fantasy drafts. Chip Kelly quarterbacks have totaled 65 touchdowns over the last two seasons.

CSN Philly reports Sam Bradford is "stringing together some pretty good practices."

Per reporter Geoff Mosher, Bradford threw with "more confidence than he’d shown since the start of camp" on Friday. Teammate Lane Johnson said he hadn't seen a quarterback with Bradford's accuracy in "quite some time." Concerns over Bradford's twice surgically-repaired left knee appear to be fading.

Sam Bradford (knee) feels better than he was expecting through the early days of camp.

"I thought my knee would hold up, but I wasn't sure," Bradford admitted. "But my knee feels great right now." Coach Chip Kelly has a reputation for being ahead of the curve on keeping his players healthy, but Bradford will be his toughest challenge yet. Bradford has some serious upside in Kelly's offense if he can stay on the field.


Aug 6 - 2:44 PM

Sources tell ESPN's Ed Werder the Eagles are discussing a short-term contract extension with Sam Bradford.

It's a tricky time to do a new deal as Bradford hasn't been healthy since 2012 yet has massive upside in Chip Kelly's offense. If he stays upright this year, he'll have a great shot at (another) huge contract in the spring. Of course, the Eagles want to keep their starting quarterback under club control beyond this season -- when his $78 million rookie contract will finally expire. Per Werder, Bradford has "made a strong early impression" on the team.

Sam Bradford (knee) has been fully cleared for 11-on-11 drills.

Bradford is finally ready to let it rip after being limited at OTAs and minicamp. A recent independent study conducted by the Eagles showed Bradford has about a 10-to-12 percent chance of re-injuring his ACL, though coach Chip Kelly won't be putting any restrictions on his new franchise QB. Bradford shed his knee brace Sunday, another sign that he's back to 100 percent. Expect Bradford to begin creeping up fantasy draft boards in short order.

Nelson Agholor said Sam Bradford (ACL) was "moving great" when the two worked out together last week.

NJ.com has already reported that Bradford is expected to be a full go when Eagles camp opens on Sunday. "To me, he looks great, he looks healthy," Agholor said. Eagles quarterbacks have thrown 59 touchdown passes in two seasons under Chip Kelly.
Jul 30 - 8:52 AM

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 NJ.com 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. NJ.com'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.
