Curry inactive again for Eagles

The only difference in the Eagles' inactives from last week is that Bradley Fletcher is out with a concussion and Brandon Hughes is active.

Chip Kelly made only one adjustment in his inactives, and that one was expected. Brandon Hughes, who was temporarily off the squad last week for salary cap reasons, is back and is active in place of Bradley Fletcher, who suffered a concussion in the season-opening victory over the Redskins.

The other inactives are unchanged: defensive end Vinny Curry, corner Shaun Prater, rookie quarterback Matt Barkley, tight end Emil Igwenagu, offensive tackle Matt Tobin and offensive tackle Dennis Kelly.

The Eagles are expected to start Brandon Boykin in Fletcher's spot, with Boykin moving inside to his usual spot in nickel, and Hughes playing outside, possibly with help from rookie Jordan Poyer.

Manti Te'o is out for the Chargers.
