Bradford (shoulder) will practice Tuesday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bradford has missed the Eagles' past two games due to a shoulder injury, and although coach Chip Kelly is unsure if he'll be able to return for Sunday's contest versus the Patriots, Bradford will at least be back in practice Tuesday. From there, his progress is expected to be updated throughout the week, with Mark Sanchez remaining the Eagles' backup plan if Bradford can't play.
Ellerbe (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Ramon Humber and Hau'oli Kikaha will likely flank Stephone Anthony, who is easily the team's strongest IDP option at linebacker. Kikaha does have four sacks and three forced fumbles, but he's averaging just over four tackles per game. Once healthy, Ellerbe could perhaps re-enter the IDP conversation, though it seems more likely he'll have a part-time role.
Hawthorne did not record a tackle in Thursday's game against the Falcons.
With the return of Dannell Ellerbe to the Saints' lineup, Hawthorne's playing time has dwindled, as he played only three snaps against the Falcons, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. So long as Ellerbe is healthy, Hawthorne is not worth owning in IDP leagues.
