Considering that this isn’t to his throwing shoulder, Bowen mentioned that Bradford shouldn’t be out long.
According to David Chao, an AC joint sprain return is a pain and function issue. However, there are no long-term concerns with this type of injury.
Chao adds that Bradford could play next week with treatment and medication, but this is without factoring in the concussion he sustained.
The problem for Bradford and the Eagles is that they play two games over the next 11 days, which could complicate his return.
The Philadelphia Eagles announced that X-rays came back negative on QB Sam Bradford‘s left shoulder. However, Bradford will not return to the game.
It was also announced that Bradford sustained a concussion during the game.
David Chao mentions that this rules out a fractured clavicle, and should only be a short-term injury for Bradford.
Eagles QB Sam Bradford was forced from Sunday’s game and taken to the locker room with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. He’s having X-rays taken right now.
Bradford was replaced by Mark Sanchez.
Based on the video, David Chao believes Bradford has an AC joint sprain/shoulder separation.
Bradford, 28, is in the final year of his six-year, $78 million contract that included $50 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $12.985 million for the 2015 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent next year.
Entering today’s game, Bradford has thrown for 2,061 yards while completing 62.9 percent of his passes to go along with 10 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 18 quarterback out of 36 qualifying players.
