The Philadelphia Eagles will start their 2018 season as the reigning Super Bowl Champions on September 6, however they will be missing a key player – linebacker Nigel Bradham.

Field Yates of ESPN first reported earlier today that Bradham may be facing a one-game suspension:

Only a few hours later, Bradham himself confirmed the news and apologized to his teammates and fans while citing the reason for the suspention:

As Bradham mentions in his post, the suspension is a result of his arrest in Miami almost two years ago.

With veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow already placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL, it is likely that Corey Nelson and Kamu Grugier-Hill will compete to start in Bradham’s place for the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.
