Eagles Injury Update: Sam Bradford sits out, Jason Peters practices

Here's an early update on the team's Week 11 injury situation.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time since their terrible loss to the Miami Dolphins. Keep in mind Tuesday is typically a light session. Here's a full update on the team's injury situation.

Sam Bradford

Bradford attended practice but he didn't participate. His arm was not in a sling. Reports indicate Mark Sanchez will start at quarterback this week and possibly on Thanksgiving as well. If Sanchez starts, Thad Lewis will likely be active as the team's backup quarterback.

Jason Peters

Philadelphia's starting left tackle participated in practice. Lane Johnson told reporters he expects himself to start at right tackle this week, but he's still not completely sure. Peters is dealing with a back injury that is reportedly degenerative.

Ryan Mathews

Mathews was not on the practice field. The team's backup running back suffered a concussion in Week 10. He'll have to pass through the NFL's mandatory concussion protocol before he can return.

Connor Barwin

Barwin didn't practice. There's no indication that he's hurt, so it could be a rest day.

Walter Thurmond

Didn't practice. Potentially the same deal as Barwin.

Josh Andrews

Andrews suffered a concussion in practice last week. The backup offensive lineman was on the field but he didn't participate.

Jerome Couplin

The reserve safety and special teams contributor hasn't practiced since suffering a shoulder injury last week. Jimmy Kempski reports Couplin might be placed on injured reserve as soon as this week. The Eagles worked out a few free agent defensive backs on Monday.


The Eagles will release their first official Week 11 injury report tomorrow on Wednesday.
