The Eagles received good news on the injury front on Monday: Dennis Kelly and Bradley Fletcher were full participants in practice.
Backup offensive lineman Dennis Kelly had been recovering from surgery after suffering a back injury in Eagles training camp. His return bolsters the Eagles' OL depth.
Starting cornerback Fletcher missed Sunday's Eagles-Chargers game due to a concussion suffered in week 1. It was announced earlier in the day Fletcher had been medically cleared from his injury. Philadelphia certainly could have used him on Sunday since the Eagles' secondary struggled. Fletcher's replacement, Brandon Boykin, played well in his absence but his starting counterpart, Cary Williams, did not.
The only player that did not participate was Brandon Hughes. The veteran CB left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury.
Other Eagles players listed on the injury report, but were full participants, include:
