The Eagles ruled cornerback Bradley Fletcher out for Sunday's game against the Chargers with a concussion.
Fletcher didn't practice all week. Brandon Boykin is expected to slide outside from the slot and start for Fletcher at least in the base defense. The Eagles had no media access on Friday.
If Boykin doesn't start, Brandon Hughes and Jordan Poyer are the other likely options. Boykin could move back to his usual spot in the slot in the nickel defense and either Hughes or Poyer could replace him outside. Hughes missed the first game as he recovered from a fractured hand. He practiced all week and has been cleared to play.
Poyer played last week against the Redskins, inside and outside. The rookie struggled.
