Upset by news reports that starting middle linebacker Stewart Bradley could miss the season with a knee injury, Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said he’s not talking about it.
The Eagles confirmed that Bradley suffered a knee injury in practice Sunday. On Monday, reports surfaced that the third-year pro has a torn ACL and is likely lost for the season.
After practice, Reid criticized the media instead of discussing the injury. He said some reporters violated his “pact” with them, which Reid said dictates that reporters ask only him about team injuries, not players or other team personnel.
