Ryan Mathews returned to practice on Tuesday after missing three games with a concussion. Now that he's through the league-mandate concussion protocol, Mathews could be back in the lineup on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. "I'm feeling good," Mathews told reporters. "Just need to take it day-by-day. I'm really optimistic about [playing]. " Mathews said the "training staff was on it" when asked about the duration of the concussion. He said he must adjust to the speed of the game after missing so much time.

Two days away from their Thanksgiving game with the Detroit Lions, the Eagles remained mum Tuesday on the identity of their starting quarterback. Although there are indications that Mark Sanchez will start for the second consecutive week, Sam Bradford is hoping to return to action. The Eagles had only a walk-through on Tuesday. Bradford was limited, which means he did not take his usual allotment of first-team snaps. He has been cleared from his concussion but still has discomfort from a separated non-throwing shoulder.

Sam Bradford returned to practice on a limited basis Monday after he was cleared by an independent neurologist to return following a concussion he suffered on Nov. 15. He also had a separated left shoulder. There was no word on whether Bradford would play Thursday against the Detroit Lions, or whether Mark Sanchez would make his second consecutive start. Coach Chip Kelly refused to discuss Bradford's injury. When offensive lineman Lane Johnson was asked who he thinks will start, he said Sanchez without hesitation.

SAM BRADFORD has been cleared by an independent neurologist, the Eagles said, meaning he has completed the NFL concussion protocol, but Bradford was just a partial participant in Monday's practice, the only full-scale workout before the Thanksgiving game at Detroit. So it seems likely Mark Sanchez will again quarterback the Birds against the Lions; offensive tackle Lane Johnson said that was his expectation. The two other concussed Eagles, running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Zach Ertz, are expected to sit, as well.

IT'S DOWN to the shoulder, Sam Bradford said Tuesday, and he wasn't talking about carving strategies for Thursday's dinner. Bradford spoke to reporters for the first time since he suffered a concussion and a Grade II left shoulder AC sprain against Miami, and he was upbeat about his chances of playing in Detroit, where the Eagles visit the Lions for Thanksgiving. Bradford, Mark Sanchez, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Eagles coach Chip Kelly all said in various forums they didn't know whether Bradford or Sanchez will start.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the Eagles' 45-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The injury placed Ertz in the concussion protocol, which could put Ertz's status in doubt for the Eagles game against Detroit on Thanksgiving. The Eagles have only two days of practice before they leave for the game. The play occurred when Ertz tried hurdling a defender on a third down in the second quarter. Ertz fell on his neck and was taken into the locker room for evaluation.

Sam Bradford still has not practiced this week because of a concussion. His absence on Thursday meant he missed the two most intense workdays of the week for the Eagles, so his status for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay remains in serious doubt even though he has not been ruled out officially. Mark Sanchez is expected to start at quarterback. It seems as if Bradford is in the second stage of the five-step concussion protocol. He is allowed at meetings, but he is not doing any cardiovascular or strength work.

Lawyers opposed to the NFL's plan to compensate thousands of former players for the long-term health effects of repeated concussions urged a federal appeals court in Philadelphia on Thursday to overturn the potential $1 billion deal. Representing about 90 players who have called the settlement unfair, the lawyers argued that it includes an arbitrary cutoff date that would deny relief to those diagnosed in the future with one of football's signature diseases. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.)

SAM BRADFORD watched Eagles practice Tuesday, wearing his red practice jersey over a black hooded sweatshirt. There was no word from the team about where the quarterback stands in relation to the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, but teammates said Bradford seemed fine to them. The NFL Network has reported that Bradford likely will miss Sunday's game against Tampa and the short-week Thanksgiving game in Detroit. Dennis Kelly, the right tackle who set too far upfield, allowing Miami linebacker Chris McCain to get inside him and slam Bradford to the turf Sunday, said he apologized to Bradford for what happened.

THE CONCUSSION Sam Bradford suffered Sunday seems much more likely to sideline him this week against Tampa Bay than the shoulder injury that drew everyone's attention as Bradford cradled his left arm while heading off for X-rays in the third quarter of the Eagles' loss to Miami. A medical source said the Grade II AC joint sprain to Bradford's nonthrowing shoulder is the sort of thing a quarterback could play through, given the right pain medication. But concussions obviously aren't like that, and 94WIP's Howard Eskin reported that Bradford had trouble remembering the first half of the game when questioned Sunday.
