Bradley Has Fans Atwitter

Eagles middle linebacker Stewart Bradley is not saying he will be back from a torn ACL for the playoffs, even though his Twitter feed did say that.

Eagles fans following Bradley's feed were excited today to read, in the wake of Tuesday's repair done by Dr. James Andrews in Alabama, "Dr Andrews is a miracle worker, everything went great. Thanks for all the well wishes. Be back in December and ready for playoffs!"

Since there has been quite a bit of trouble with athletes' Twitter feeds that turned out not to be athletes' Twitter feeds, your Eagletarian texted and then called an Eagles spokesman to check this out, getting no response. Then I texted ol' Stew (sorry, Andy.) Stew said he was not confirming the tweet, that "my boy Nate has my account info, he Tweeted that, not me."

Which, of course, brings up the question of whether Nate was just Twittering with us, or accurately reflecting what his boy Stew had told him ... not necessarily for public consumption? We texted Stew on that matter. Still waiting for an answer, oddly enough.

Our thinking? Where there's Tweet, there's fire.

UPDATING: An Eagles spokesman, asked if the team wanted to comment, replied that in the Eagles' view, Bradley's is a "6-to-12-month injury."

So that would be a "no" on the Stew return scenario, since six months from the date of the surgery is still four days after the Super Bowl, Feb. 7, 2010. We'll still be watching for the team to officially place Bradley on IR, though, something that has not yet happened.
