Rookie Dennis Kelly will take his first snap in the NFL in place of injured right guard Danny Watkins for the Philadelphia Eagles against Atlanta on Sunday.
Watkins, a first-round pick last year, is out with an ankle injury that coach Andy Reid labeled as ''chronic.'' Kelly, a fifth-round pick from Purdue, played tackle in college.
Linebacker Jamar Chaney and wide receiver Damaris Johnson are among Philadelphia's healthy inactives. Chaney was a starter earlier in the season. Johnson began the season as the Eagles' punt returner.
Wide receiver Harry Douglas is inactive for the Falcons because of ankle and knee injuries.

Week 8 Recap
The Eagles are in free fall and more changes could be on the way after Reid dropped a game after having the bye week. This just never happens. It was hinted that we could see Nick Foles sooner rather than later this season and we just get him next Sunday. Mike Vick said this after the game.
The quarterback and the coach alike have chosen to make it a topic for public conversation, so, here it is. Who should the Eagles start moving forward – Michael Vick, or Nick Foles? The logical answer is fairly straightforward, actually. However, there are many mitigating factors at play here.
According to mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Eagles head coach Andy Reid wanted to bench Michael Vick last season, but Vince Young didn’t play well enough while Vick was … Continue reading »
It’s funny: I am not angry over the 30-17 loss the Eagles suffered to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Well, I am upset that the Falcons scored on their first six possessions and held a 24-7 halftime lead. The Eagles made third-down stops, only to be overturned by penalty.
The Eagles could not stop the rain and wind, nor could they stop Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan and the rest...
PHILADELPHIA - The Atlanta Falcons remained the NFL's only undefeated team as they rolled to a 30-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles had changed defensive coordinators during their bye week, but the switch from Juan Castillo to Todd Bowles didn't seem to help as the Falcons (7-0) scored touchdowns on their first three...
