Eagles’ special teams ace injured in 1st half vs. Cowboys


Eagles linebacker and special teams ace Shaun Bradley was injured in the first half of the Eagles’ game against the Cowboys on Saturday night

Bradley left the game late in the second quarter and was visibly frustrated. He took a lengthy trip to the blue medical tent before heading into the Eagles locker room early.

The Eagles ruled Bradley out early in the second half.

Bradley, 24, has been dealing with a stinger after getting into a minor auto accident on his way to the NovaCare Complex last Saturday. Bradley was held out of the Washington game for precautionary reasons but was listed on the Eagles’ injury report this week.

While the Eagles didn’t play most of their regulars on Saturday night in an attempt to avoid key injuries, losing Bradley going into the playoffs would hurt. He doesn’t normally play on defense, but Bradley has been an ace special teamer and is even a Pro Bowl alternate.

The Eagles had one other injury in the first half. Center Brett Toth left with a knee injury. His return is also questionable. In his place, the Eagles slid Jack Anderson to center.

They finished the half with this offensive line (left to right): Andre Dillard, Sua Opeta, Anderson, Kayode Awosika, Le’Raven Clark.
