Eagles vs. Buccaneers Injury Report: Sam Bradford ruled out, Mark Sanchez will start

New, comments

Here's a final update on the Eagles' Week 11 injury situation.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report in advance of their Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sam Bradford has officially been ruled out, as expected. Bradford is still recovering from a concussion and he also has a separated shoulder on the non-throwing side of his body. With Bradford out, Mark Sanchez will start at quarterback. Thad Lewis will be active as the primary backup. Trey Burton and Josh Huff are the emergency quarterback options.

Ryan Mathews has also been ruled out after not practicing all week due to a concussion. With Mathews out, the Eagles will be forced to rely upon DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles more. Fourth string running back Kenjon Barner could also get some playing time on offense.

Starting left tackle Jason Peters is officially questionable. He was a limited participant in practice on Thursday after not practicing at all on Wednesday. It's hard to get a great read on his status. If Peters can't go, expect Lane Johnson to start at left tackle with Dennis Kelly once again getting the nod at right tackle.

Connor Barwin is probable to play after missing practice on Wednesday and being limited on Thursday.

Josh Huff sat out of practice on Thursday but returned on Friday and is probable for Sunday's game.

Backup center/guard Josh Andrews has been cleared to return after suffering a concussion in practice last week. He's listed as probable for this week despite not practicing on Wednesday and Thursday.

Depth safety Jerome Couplin is still out with a shoulder injury.
