Vinny Curry active for first time this season

Aside from the four injured players that were already listed as out -- quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy, wide receiver Jason Avant and running back Chris Polk -- the Eagles did not dress defensive end Phillip Hunt, offensive lineman Nate Menkin and wide receiver Greg Salas.

Aside from the four injured players that were already listed as out -- quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy, wide receiver Jason Avant and running back Chris Polk -- the Eagles did not dress defensive end Phillip Hunt, offensive lineman Nate Menkin and wide receiver Greg Salas.

Nick Foles will make his second straight start at quarterback in place of Vick (concussion). Rookie Bryce Brown will make his first career start filling in for McCoy (concussion). And Riley Cooper will be the Eagles' third receiver with Avant (hamstring) sidelined.

As expected, rookie defensive end Vinny Curry was active for the first time this season. The Eagles have five defensive ends active -- Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Darryl Tapp and Brandon Graham are the others -- with Curry up.

Hunt has been inactive for the last two games.

Danny Watkins was listed as active even though Andy Reid said last week that his ankle still wasn't 100 percent. Jake Scott will start in place of Watkins at right guard for the second straight week.
