KANSAS CITY — Without cornerback Ronald Darby, the Eagles have both Rasul Douglas and Dexter McDougle active on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The inactive for the Eagles are Darby; wide receivers Shelton Gibson and Marcus Johnson; defensive end Steven Means; defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao; and offensive lineman Chance Warmack.

The Eagles only need six inactives because they have only 52 players on the active roster after placing Donnel Pumphrey on injured reserve.

Darby (ankle) and Vaeao (hand) were both ruled out because of injuries. Johnson is new to the inactive list, but the Eagles apparently wanted more cornerback help without Darby. That’s why Douglas and McDougle are in uniform on Sunday. Both were inactive last week. Douglas, the Eagles’ third-round pick, is making his NFL debut. McDougle is making his regular season debut with the Eagles.
