Sam Bradford Has Sprained AC Joint, Concussion

Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford had to leave his team’s 20-19 loss to Miami in the third quarter Sunday with injuries after a sack by Dolphins linebacker Chris McCain. It turns out Bradford suffered a concussion and a Grade II sprain in the AC joint in his left shoulder, according to the Philadelphia Daily News’ Les Bowen (Twitter links: 1; 2). While Bowen speculates that the shoulder injury isn’t one that should keep Bradford out long, the unpredictable nature of concussions leaves his status going forward murky.

At 4-5, the Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives and are about to face two games in a short span – one next Sunday against the Buccaneers, the second a few days later on Thanksgiving (in Detroit) – so a banged-up Bradford doesn’t seem to bode well for their postseason chances.

    good now kelly has a reason to get him out of the starter role without looking like an ass for trading nick for him in the first place. bradford slows this offense down so much..
