Vinny Curry is likely to be active for this week's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to a team source. Curry, the Eagles' second round pick, has not been active in all 10 games this season. 

CSNPhilly.com first reported the news.

Throughout the season, the Eagles continued to suggest that Curry was caught up in a numbers game, even though the players ahead of Curry were struggling to get sacks. The Eagles have activated four defensive ends during the past three weeks and five defensive ends during the prior seven games. Phillp Hunt was inactive the past two games, too. Pay attention to whether the Eagles dress four ends against the Panthers or five ends, and sit one defensive tackle.

Look for much more on Curry in The Inquirer this week.
