Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford made his highly anticipated debut on Monday Night Football, which ended in a close loss to the Atlanta Falcons, 26-24.
After Monday night’s game, Bradford said that he had some precautionary x-rays taken. While he didn’t elaborate as to what part of his body he had x-rayed, the quarterback didn’t seem to be too concerned (via NFL.com):
“Don’t worry about it,” he said. “I’m all good. They said everything is all good. I’m fine.”
Perhaps the Eagles will just x-ray Bradford after every game, just to make sure nothing’s wrong.
Hopefully for the Eagles sake there is truly nothing to worry about. As we all know, Bradford is not the most durable of quarterbacks as documented by two back-to-back ACL surgeries that kept him out of 25 regular-season games in 2013 and 2014.
Let’s hope once the results of Bradford’s precautionary x-rays are revealed, the news allows him to suit up in Week 2 when the Eagles face the Dallas Cowboys. And, while we’re at it, let’s hope Bradford plays better in the upcoming rivalry game than he did against the Falcons when he threw one touchdown and two interceptions.
