Bradford out, QB Sanchez to start for Eagles vs. Bucs

Sanchez to start at QB for Eagles vs. Bucs

PHILADELPHIA — Mark Sanchez will start at quarterback in place of injured Sam Bradford when the Eagles host the Bucs on Sunday. Bradford was ruled out Friday with a concussion and a left shoulder injury.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly says he has confidence in Sanchez, an eight-year veteran. The Eagles can move into a first-place tie in the NFC East with a win.

Also out for the Eagles is running back Ryan Mathews (concussion). Left tackle Jason Peters did not practice Friday and is questionable with a back injury.

Bradford suffered his injury when he was sacked in the third quarter of a loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Sanchez relieved him and completed 14 of 23 for 156 yards. He threw a crucial end-zone interception with less than five minutes to play.

    Bucs

    TAMPA — The wind is never going to be at Roberto Aguayo's back when he lines up for a field goal or extra point this offseason in his quest to remain the Bucs' kicker.

    Roberto Aguayo, coming off a rookie season in which he had an NFL-worst 71 percent field-goal accuracy, made only 1 of 4 Tuesday on the narrow goalposts at One Buc Place as he begins his battle to keep his job.
