“I think I’ll be out there” Sam Bradford confident he will start on Thursday


The Eagles are still yet to officially announce their starting Quarterback for this week after Sam Bradford was sidelined during Sunday’s loss following a concussion and a shoulder separation. However, Bradford not only returned to practice yesterday despite being limited but also told me media he hopes to play.

“We need this game as bad as we’ve needed one this year” Bradford told CSN’s Reuben Frank. “Hopefully I’m out there.”

He went on to tell Reuben “If it continues to progress in the next 48 hours, I think I’ll be out there”

Zach Berman also stated that the issue the team are worried about is the shoulder. Bradford has passed through concussion protocol and whilst he may not need surgery on his non throwing shoulder, he was very limited in practice.

This could be the factor that decides whether or not he plays on Thrusday as Eliot Shorr-Parks tweeted earlier. If he is still suffering discomfort now, a blindside hit could do much more damage.


It’s the same injury that he sustained back in 2009 but this time on the non-throwing arm. It also marks the third concussion of the season for Bradford and arguably his worst after reports surfaced of the Heisman trophy winner suffering memory loss.

It will likely be the next 48-hours that determine if he does get the start or not but after walking through the walk-through with the team today, the signs are promising. It’s evident that Sammy B wants to play as quotes continue to highlight how important he regards this game. Will we see him on the field come Thursday? There’s only one way to tell..
