Sam Bradford has been practicing for over a week now, and was listed as a full participant Wednesday, overcoming a concussion and shoulder injury (sustained in Week 10 against the Dolphins).

The Eagles could use their leader back, having faltered three times in his absence.

“I feel much better than I did at this point last week,” Bradford said. “I’m much more comfortable out there with what I’ve been able to do on the field. It’s starting to feel good.”

Bradford was playing his best football before getting injured, and if he can regain his form it could go a long way toward getting the Eagles into playoff position. He is expected to start against the Patriots in their Week 13 battle in New England, a 4:25 start on FOX.

“The good news is we’re only a game back in our division,” Bradford said of the 4-7 Eagles.”Obviously, the season hasn’t gone the way we hoped for. That being said, we’re still in a position to get on a roll here and make the playoffs. Every game from here on out is important.”

Mark Sanchez, who played in Bradford’s stead, has four interceptions, four touchdowns and 606 yards in two and a half games.

Bradford has 11 picks, 10 touchdowns and 2,297 passing yards in nine games.
