Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford says he expects to play Sunday against the New England Patriots.
“I feel much better than I did at this point last week,” Bradford said. “I’m much more comfortable out there with what I’ve been able to do on the field. It’s starting to feel good.”
Bradford cleared concussion protocol, but was unable to play against Detroit last Thursday due to a separated left shoulder he also sustained against the Dolphins.
Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez has started in place of Bradford for the past two games. Sanchez threw for 261 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 45–17 loss to the Buccaneers, and 199 yards and two touchdowns in a 45–14 loss to the Lions.
Bradford has thrown for 2,297 yards and 11 touchdowns in nine games this season.
The Patriots (10–1) will host the Eagles (4–7) at Gillette Stadium at 4:25 p.m. ET.
