Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Working through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is considered "day-to-day," Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Bradham suffered an ankle injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Vikings. His initial status sounds positive for his chances of playing this Sunday against the Cowboys, but Wednesday's initial practice report will reveal more.

Bradham (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bradham will likely be evaluated following the game. In his place, rookie T.J. Edwards is expected be deployed in an increased role.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

It's unclear how Bradham suffered the ankle injury, but he was forced to leave the game early in the third quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for T.J. Edwards to be deployed as the team's middle linebacker for the time being.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Grabs game-sealing interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham had six tackles (four solo) and an interception during Thursday's 34-27 win at Green Bay.

Bradham was in the right place at the right time to secure the interception off a deflection with less than a minute remaining and the Packers on the three-yard line. The 30-year-old has 21 tackles (15 solo) with three passes defensed and an interception through four games while working as an every-down linebacker for Philadelphia.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Paces team in tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 32-27 win over the Redskins.

After nursing a hand injury and possibly inviting team discipline for a different incident during the preseason, Bradham started at linebacker and played 100 percent of the snaps. Assuming health, the 30-year-old should be good for close to 100 tackles this season, and this effort put him slightly ahead of the pace.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Suiting up Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham expects to suit up versus the Redskins on Sunday and avoid a suspension, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Bradham could still face internal discipline from coach Doug Pederson but isn't expected to miss any regular-season time. The veteran linebacker reportedly failed to alert the coaching staff that he was ill and did not intend to travel to the Eagles' final preseason game. Bradham also appears clear of his lingering hand injury and projects for his usual every-down role Week 1.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (hand) is not listed on Philadelphia's injury report Wednesday.

Bradham spent the preseason nursing a hand injury and has now managed to achieve full health. The veteran is primed for an every-down role in the Eagles' linebacker corps.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (hand) is on track to play Sunday against the Redskins, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Bradham was only participating in individual drills as of a week ago, but head coach Doug Pederson seems to think the veteran will be on the field come Sunday. Look for more official updates on his status to come when the Eagles practice report is released Wednesday.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Still not cleared for team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (hand) has only participated in individual drills in training camp and his Week 1 status is unclear, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bradham was limited to start training camp, but has practiced consistently in individual drills since then. When healthy, the 29-year-old is expected to shoulder an every-down role in 2019 after logging at least 900 defensive snaps in each of his first three seasons with Philadelphia.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham was limited by a hand injury in Monday's practice, Darren Gallen of PennLive.com reports.

It's unclear how much longer the hand issue will limit Bradham. When healthy, the seven-year pro is expected to handle an every-down role in 2019. Bradham has already seen at least 900 defensive snaps in his first three seasons with the Eagles, logging 283 total tackles, 19 tackles for loss, five sacks and three forced fumbles in that span.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Poised for three-down role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham is expected to handle an every-down role, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

The Eagles swapped out Jordan Hicks for Zach Brown at middle linebacker this offseason, potentially freeing up a spot for Kamu Grugier-Hill in nickel packages. Either way, Bradham will continue to fill a three-down role after topping 900 defensive snaps in each of his first three seasons with the Eagles. The heavy workloads haven't led to first-rate IDP production, with Bradham averaging 95.7 tackles (65.7 solo) and 1.7 sacks per season in Philadelphia. Much of his value to the team comes from solid work in pass coverage.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Racks up 16 playoff tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham notched nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Saints after finishing the regular season with 97 tackles (67 solo), two sacks and four passes defensed.

The tackle total was good for a share of the team lead with Malcolm Jenkins. Bradham was well worth the five-year contract he got last offseason and will count $9 million against the cap next year. The 29-year-old should be a good bet for at least another 90 tackles in 2019 but does not have much IDP upside beyond that.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Flying around the field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham recorded 14 tackles (seven solo) across 99 defensive snaps in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cowboys.

Bradham burst onto the scene Sunday, matching his single-game high for tackles previously set in 2016. He now has 80 tackles and two sacks on the season and continues to see the most reps in the Eagles' linebacking corps.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Ready for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (thumb) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Redskins.

Bradham played through a broken thumb last week against the Giants and will continue to play through the injury after having surgery last Monday. The 29-year-old had six pins inserted to help stabilize the thumb but will continue to play, though it wouldn't be surprising for him to have a cast or some sort of additional protection following the surgery.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Has broken thumb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham played through a fractured thumb during Sunday's win against the Giants, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Bradham broke his left thumb in three places on the third play of the contest but proceeded to log all 62 snaps on defense, totaling seven tackles in the process. On Monday, he underwent surgery, having a plate and six pins inserted to stabilize the appendage, per Zangaro. Bradham expects to keep playing, whether he's wearing the thick cast he had Wednesday or some other form of protection.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Tallies team-high tackle total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas.

Bradham saw season-highs with 69 snaps and 10 tackles. The 29-year-old is now up to 51 tackles on the year with two sacks and two passes defensed. The Florida State product should be good for a handful of tackles Week 11 at New Orleans.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Returns with vengeance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham recorded eight tackles (three solo) and a sack across 47 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

After sitting out his one-game suspension, Bradham returned in full force Sunday, playing in 81 percent of the defensive snaps. He also tied for second in tackles in the contest. Bradham should continue to play a significant role on the Eagles defense as the season progresses.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Returns from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham (suspension) can return to the Eagles' active roster Friday, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Bradham received a one-game suspension for undisclosed reasons back in June, and he can return to the Eagles after sitting out Thursday's season opener. Linebackers Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Gerry both saw less than 30 defensive snaps Thursday, as veteran safety Corey Graham saw an expanded role in Bradham's absence. The 29-year-old signed a five-year, $40 million contract with Philadelphia back in March, and he should be a significant contributor alongside middle linebacker Jordan Hicks.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Receives one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham has been suspended for the first game of the 2018 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The reasoning for Bradham's suspension hasn't been disclosed, but the linebacker will nonetheless be ineligible to play in the Eagles' season opener against the Falcons on Sept. 6. With Paul Worrilow (knee) on injured reserve, Nate Gerry or Kamu Grugier-Hill are the favorites to take Bradham's place in the starting lineup.

Eagles' Nigel Bradham: Re-signs with Philly on five-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradham agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Eagles on a five-year, $40 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Tasked with playing on the outside in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme last season, Bradham moved to the middle following Jordan Hicks' season-ending Achilles injury in October and was instrumental in aiding the Eagles to their first Super Bowl title. Bradham, who finished the past campaign with 88 tackles, eight pass breakups, one forced fumble and a sack in 15 regular-season contests, will be rewarded handsomely for his efforts, but the large financial commitment could force the Eagles to cut costs at the position by releasing fellow outside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who carries a $7.6 million cap hit for 2018. With Hicks expected back at full strength for training camp, Bradham should move back to the strong side during the upcoming season and could see his tackle total decline as a result.
