PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles held their final full-scale workout on Friday as they get ready for Sunday’s NFC playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.
For the first time since dislocating his elbow in the initial Dallas game, middle linebacker Stewart Bradley was on the practice field in a limited role.
Head coach Andy Reid was noncommittal about Bradley’s chances of playing against the Packers.
“We’ll see. We’ll see how he does. He made it through okay and we’ll see how he does,” Reid told reporters. “I still think it’s a stretch for him to play, but it was good to get him back out there and get some work.”
And Reid says Bradley is doing everything possible to get back:
“Listen, this guy is very optimistic. He’s a beast. He’s very optimistic. We were coming off the field and he had a dislocated elbow and he’s telling me he was going to be ready to go in, like, five minutes. That’s the way he is. But it’s different with what the doctors and trainers say.”
Reid said the only player who didn’t practice on Friday was guard Max Jean-Gilles. He is still bothered by an ankle sprain.
Kickoff at Lincoln Financial Field is set for 4:30 PM on Sunday.
