Sam Bradford Injury: Eagles quarterback replaced by Mark Sanchez

The Eagles' starting quarterback is down.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford injured his left shoulder after being sacked late in the third quarter of the team's game against the Miami Dolphins. His return is questionable. Bradford went into the locker room for evaluation, and was replaced by Mark Sanchez.

Bradford had a great first quarter, completing 7 of 8 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown. But he came back down to Earth after that, going 18-of-25 for 236 yards and a score before leaving the game.

As part of the trade that brought Bradford to Philadelphia in exchange for Nick Foles and a second round pick, the Eagles could have received a pick from St. Louis, depending on the amount Bradford played this season. As of last week, Bradford played more than 50 percent of the Eagles' snaps at quarterback, meaning the Rams will not send any additional picks to Philadelphia.

UPDATE: Bradford's x-rays were negative, but he will not return.

UPDATE #2: Bradford has been evaluated for and diagnosed with a concussion.
