Sam Bradford gets precautionary X-rays after Eagles-Falcons game, says he's fine

Don't push the panic button.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford spoke with reporters after the team's game against the Atlanta Falcons and said he's going to be fine. Some concern about Bradford's status arose when multiple reporters noted Bradford was seen headed to the X-ray room with a team doctor.

Bradford wouldn't reveal what part of his body he received the X-ray on. Bradford played the whole game and didn't show any noticeable signs of injury, so it's unclear what happened. With that said, the status of his health is always going to be monitored closely given his extensive injury history.

Bradford, along with the majority of the Eagles' offense, struggled early on Monday night but settled in during the second half. His final throw was picked off, however, when the ball went threw the hands of second-year wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Bradford finished the night with 32 completions on 52 attempts for 336 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and a 77.1 passer rating.
