Sam Bradford not listed on Philadelphia Eagles injury report

Philadelphia Eagles fans will be happy to hear Sam Bradford wasn't listed on the injury report when it was released on Wednesday.

This comes from major concern surrounding the quarterback when he had to have his ankles x-rayed after the game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.

The 27-year-old had his ankle taped up during Eagles' practice, but wasn't listed on the injury report, which begs the questions why he needed to have any x-rays in the first place.

The quarterback had a simple response to that question, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He said: “I knew everything was fine. They just wanted to check it out. It didn’t hurt. It wasn’t sore.”

Good news then for Bradford, the Eagles, and their fan base, as he'll be able to play in their week two divisional rivalry game against the Dallas Cowboys. 

Bradford had a reasonable regular season debut for the Eagles despite the 24-26 loss to the Falcons, as he thrived during the short passing situation that the team always runs in the Chip Kelly offense.

On the day, the 27-year-old threw for 336 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions, completing 36 of his 52 attempts and averaging 6.5 yards per completion. One of the interceptions only occurred because of a missed catch by wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

It isn't difficult to understand why the Eagles medical team would have shown some concern surrounding their quarterback. Not only is he their starter, but Monday was the first time Bradford had played a regular season game in close to two years.

It was just a precaution, so Eagles fans should have nothing to worry about.
