The Eagles have ruled LB Nigel Bradham (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Bears. It'll be the 3rd straight missed game for Bradham, who suffered the injury in the Week 6 loss at Minnesota. Bradham has yet to return to practice since.

The Eagles have ruled LB Nigel Bradham out for Sunday night's game at Dallas. That leaves Nate Gerry and Kamu Grugier-Hill as the top 2 LBs against the Cowboys. It's tough to know what to expect from either player statistically, given that they've combined for 1 total game of 50+% playing time. That came from Gerry last week when Bradham left early with his ankle sprain. Gerry is an option for deeper IDP leagues. Philly CB Ronald Darby is questionable for the game after missing the past 3 contests with a hamstring injury. The Eagles also activated CB Jalen Mills, who has been out since suffering a foot injury last October.

Eagles LB Nigel Bradham left Sunday's loss to the Vikings in the 1st half with a left ankle injury and did not return. We'll see about the severity of the injury this week. LB Nate Gerry took over defensive play-calling in Bradham's absence and played a season-high 87% of the defensive snaps. Gerry hadn't previously reached 40% in a game this year.

HC Doug Pederson told reporters Monday that the Eagles "fully expect" LB Nigel Bradham and CB Ronald Darby to play against Washington in Sunday's regular-season opener. According to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports, Pederson said: "Right now, they all practiced today. Looking good. Obviously we haven't made any official announcements on who's in, who's out, but we're going to take it day by day. But fully expect those guys you mentioned to get time on Sunday." In addition to Bradham and Darby, Pederson was also addressing DT Fletcher Cox, G Brandon Brook, DE Derek Barnett and RT Lane Johnson. Bradham, Darby and Cox should be available for IDP lineups after they spent camp and the preseason working back from offseason surgeries. Normally a 3-down player, Bradham could see his snaps limited in the opener coming off his toe rehab.

The Eagles on Wednesday signed former Bills LB Nigel Bradham, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Bradham spent his 1st 4 seasons in Buffalo. His most productive year came in 2014 under then-DC Jim Schwartz, who now serves that role in Philly. Bradham's capable of playing any LB spot in a 4-3 alignment but might be best suited for the strong side. We'll see how things sort out before projecting his IDP value.

The Bills have ruled LB Nigel Bradham out for Week 13 with an ankle injury. Rookie Tony Steward is expected to start in his place. The situation raises the tackle upside for ILB Preston Brown.
