NFL Injury Report:
Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher suffered a concussion during Monday night's 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. Fletcher will not be able to return to action until he passes the NFL's standard concussion protocol. He is currently listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers.With Fletcher's absence, second-year cornerback Brandon Boykin will likely move to the outside corner role that Fletcher normally occupies. Boykin had a nice outing Monday night as a slot cornerback, recording seven tackles, and intercepted one of Robert Griffin III's passes.The Eagles added some depth at cornerback by re-signing Brandon Hughes, just a few days after cutting him last Saturday. Hughes suffered a broken hand in the third preseason game and was not going to be available for Week 1. By cutting him and bringing him back, the Eagles saved some money as they would have had to pay Hughes' entire salary if he was on the roster for the whole season.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?Follow Chris Hecker on Twitter: @HeckDynasty

According to CSNPhilly.com, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was seen hobbling after last night’s win over the Redskins.
Vick had a great game, but took way too many shots and failed to protect himself, which isn’t a surprise given his injury history.
I find it really interesting that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and Vick aren’t worried about him getting injured. Sadly enough...

Chip Kelly is a football maniac, and get this, he thinks his team can play faster.
While addressing the media today after getting his first victory as an NFL coach, Kelly said that “the pace of the offense was too slow, and that they can go faster” according to Birds 24/7.
Chip Kelly feels like Monday's pace was too slow. http://t.co/Zr07jtRkce

Cary Williams walked his talk.
The fiery cornerback had an impressive debut with the Philadelphia Eagles after being in the spotlight for the wrong reasons throughout the summer.

1. One of the players that excelled in the defense’s new 3-4 scheme, was Trent Cole.
2. The Eagles defense showed some promise Monday night, but the team knows it is just a start.
The new version of the Philadelphia Eagles offense was a rousing success in the season opener - at least for 2 1/2 quarters.
Same goes for the San Diego Chargers, though they came away much more disappointed.
Despite successfully debuting his up-tempo style as Eagles coach, Chip Kelly would like his offense to pick up the pace even more for Sunday's matchup with the visiting...
