Chargers vs. Eagles 2013 injury report: Bradley Fletcher, Manti Te'o ruled out

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles will be without one of their starting cornerbacks against the Chargers, but they have an adept replacement in Brandon Boykin.

There will be zero mystery about who's playing for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2, as there are no players listed as probable, questionable or doubtful on the team's injury report. The only players listed out are cornerback Bradley Fletcher and offensive tackle Dennis Kelly.

The loss of Fletcher could be problematic for the Eagles since the starting corner will be replaced by the much smaller Brandon Boykin on the outside, moving Boykin away from his nickelback role. While not a disaster -- Boykin has looked good so far in 2013 -- it could create for a difficult matchup if he's asked to line up against a taller receiver like Malcom Floyd.

For the Chargers, there aren't many surprises on the team's injury report, although there was some hope earlier in the week that linebacker Manti Te'o might be able to make his NFL debut. Still nursing an injured foot, Te'o was ruled out for Sunday's game, meaning the Chargers will again have to rely on Bront Bird to start in his place, which wasn't a successful venture in Week 1.

Here are the full lists of injuries heading into Sunday's game:

CB Bradley Fletcher (concussion)
T Dennis Kelly (back)

LB Manti Te'o (foot)


DL Sean Lissemore (elbow)
