Nigel Bradham on Thursday missed his second straight practice because of an ankle injury, which is not a good sign for his possible availability Sunday night in Dallas.
Bradham injured his ankle in the loss to Minnesota. On Wednesday, he limped through the locker room with his left ankle wrapped.
If Bradham doesn't play this weekend and without Zach Brown, who was cut on Monday, the Eagles' top linebackers are likely to be Kamu Grugier-Hill, Nathan Gerry and undrafted rookie T.J. Edwards. The Eagles also have Duke Riley and recently called up Alex Singleton.

DeSean Jackson (abdomen) wasn't practicing either. It's looking like a long shot that he'll be able to play against Dallas.
The official injury report will come out later today, but here's what I saw during the open portion of practice on Thursday afternoon:
Not at practice today: DeSean Jackson, Avonte Maddox, Nigel Bradham, Darren Sproles
Returned today: Fletcher Cox
Out here but won't practice: Jason Peters, Tim Jernigan
Practicing again: Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills #Eagles— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroNBCS) October 17, 2019
Cox (illness) returned after missing Wednesday. He'll be good to go this weekend.
Darby (hamstring) was a limited participant to start the week, but he was able to practice again on Thursday.
Mills (foot) is not active yet, but there's an open roster spot waiting for him if he's able to return this week. Since he's not on the 53-man roster, he's not required to be on the injury report. It's a good sign that he was practicing again today.
