Bradley Fletcher Ruled Out For Sunday’s Game

Bradley FletcherEagles 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.

Zach Ertz, Jordan Poyer Face Early Test

Rams running back Isaiah Pead called his rookie season “miserable.”

The 50th overall pick in the 2012 draft and presumed heir apparent to Steven Jackson never got off the ground. He slipped behind seventh-rounder Daryl Richardson on the depth chart and ended with only 10 carries for 54 yards on the season.

Rams general manager Les Snead attributed a portion of Pead’s struggles to the effects of the league’s graduation rule — the same one that kept tight end Zach Ertz and cornerback Jordan Poyer away from the NovaCare until recently.

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.
