After a week of speculation surrounding the health of quarterback Sam Bradford, it appears Chip Kelly's headline-grabbing acquisition will make his Eagles debut Saturday night. Per a report by Fox 29's Howard Eskin, Bradford will indeed start Sunday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Bradford was held out of the preseason opener against the Colts as a precautionary measure. All week during practice Bradford indicated that he would be healthy enough to play Saturday, though there was never an official confirmation from Chip Kelly or the coaching staff.

The former first overall pick has had an impressive camp, and the Eagles are reportedly excited about his potential in Kell'y offense. Bradford has not seen live game action since the 2014 preseason when he tore his ACL against the BrownsThe Eagles will take on the Ravens Saturday night.
