Bradford shines in Eagles' 39-26 win over Packers; Cobb hurt

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Injuries are piling up in the preseason for the Green Bay Packers. Receiver Randall Cobb was the latest star to get hurt.

The Philadelphia Eagles keep piling on the points.

Shaking off rust, quarterback Sam Bradford was 10 of 10 for 121 yards and three touchdowns in his most extensive action in exhibition play, and the Eagles (3-0) stayed perfect in the preseason with a 39-26 win on Saturday night over the Packers.

Acquired in the offseason from St. Louis, Bradford is coming back from tearing his ACL twice in a 10-month span while with the Rams. He kept coach Chip Kelly's offense humming against the Packers' first-team defense.

Any doubts about Bradford's health appeared to be answered to Kelly.

"I didn't have any doubts on Sam, so I'm not concerned what people outside think," he said.

Bradford led three drives before giving way to backup Mark Sanchez in the second quarter.

Cobb didn't make it nearly that long.

He left with a shoulder injury after landing hard on his right side while trying to catch a pass near the sideline on the first series for the Packers (1-2). Cobb said a defender landed on top of him.

He is the second starting wideout to get hurt for the Packers in preseason action. Jordy Nelson was lost for the season with a right knee injury last Sunday against Pittsburgh.

But it doesn't appear that Packers coach Mike McCarthy is nearly as worried about Cobb as he was when Nelson tore his ACL.

"We thought it could've been collarbone or something; it's not. So, fortunately enough, there's a silver lining in it," Cobb said.

More tests are planned during the team's day off on Sunday, but Cobb said he didn't think this was a serious injury. The Packers would be in deep trouble if they lost Cobb for any length of time.

"It felt like a bad dream in that situation, having Jordy go down last week and then three plays in this series," Cobb said.
