Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford returned to practice on Monday after being officially cleared from a concussion he suffered last week, according to multiple reports.

It's still unclear if Bradford will play this week when the Eagles play the Detroit Lions on Thursday. Philadelphia reporters did see Bradford participate in individual drills. According to Eagles players, however, Bradford did not participate in team drills.

Multiple signs point to Mark Sanchez getting the start on Thanskgiving despite Bradford's return to practice. On Sunday evening, Howard Eskin reported Bradford is unlikely to play this week. Starting tackle Lane Johnson also told reporters he expects Sanchez to get the nod.

Bradford hasn't played well this year, but he was arguably playing his best football of the season right before he got hurt. Meanwhile, Sanchez has thrown four interceptions since taking over for Bradford, including three in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Keep in mind the concussion isn't the only injury Bradford suffered in Week 10. He also suffered a separated shoulder on his non-throwing arm.
