Here’s a look at Eagles snap counts against the Chargers, with notes on Brandon Graham, James Casey, Earl Wolff and others.
The following Eagles are inactive for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers: QB Matt Barkley, CB Bradley Fletcher, CB Shaun Prater, OT Matt Tobin, OT Dennis Kelly, DE Vinny Curry and TE Emil Igwenagu.
Eagles starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
The 27-year-old sustained a concussion late in the game against Washington. He had yet to pass the ImPACT test as of Thursday afternoon.
The Eagles’ depth in the secondary will be tested. Brandon Boykin is expected to start on the outside in Fletcher’s absence, though he could very well move into the slot in certain packages as well. Brandon Hughes, who is recovering from a fractured hand, is a logical candidate to play on the outside when Boykin does move inside.
Of the 61 spots on the Eagles’ roster (practice squad included), five are occupied by guys who played their college ball at Oregon.
Today, Chip Kelly was asked if his familiarity with the former Ducks can help him build his program with the Eagles.
“If we were gonna sing the Oregon fight song, it would,” Kelly joked.
The initial overhaul during the summer of 2011 didn’t work out, so the Eagles tried again this offseason.
Gone are Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha. In are Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher.
During the draft, the Eagles didn’t find corner help early, but they grabbed Oregon State’s Jordan Poyer in the seventh round.
Riley Cooper made his return, and Phillip Hunt has been nearly phased out. Here’s a breakdown of snap counts for the Eagles during their Week 6 loss against the Lions.
The Eagles and cornerback Brandon Hughes have agreed to a one-year contract extension, according to a report.
