Eagles Injury Update: Sam Bradford expected to start, Ryan Mathews still out

Here's an early update on the team's Week 13 injury situation.

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

Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford seemingly practiced in full on Tuesday, according to several players. Lane Johnson said he expects Bradford to start this week. (Eagles totally gonna beat the Pats now.) Prior the Lions game, the Eagles reportedly felt Bradford was very close to playing. The Eagles' starting quarterback is dealing with a separated AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder.

Eric Rowe

Rowe isn't hurt, but Bill Davis made it sound like he'll be replacing the injured Nolan Carroll at starting cornerback. The Eagles turned to Rowe off the bench when Carroll went down in the Lions game. To no surprise, the rookie struggled to cover Calvin Johnson.

Jason Peters

Peters left Thursday's game early with an ankle injury but did practice on Tuesday.

Ryan Mathews

For the first time since suffering a concussion during the Eagles-Dolphins game, Mathews was seen attending practice. He did not participate, however.

Walter Thurmond

The team's starting safety sat out on Tuesday. He's been dealing with a hamstring injury but hasn't missed any game action.

Josh Huff

The second-year receiver suffered a concussion in the Eagles-Lions game and left early. Huff did not practice on Tuesday, but Adam Caplan reports he's expected to return and play this week. Or he'll be left on the bench while Miles Austin and Riley Cooper get way too many snaps.

Zach Ertz

Ertz returned to the practice for the first time since suffering a concussion in the Eagles-Buccaneers game.


The Eagles will release their first official Week 13 injury report tomorrow on Wednesday.
