Eagles Notes: Fletcher Still Out, Hughes Returns
Cornerback Bradley Fletcher remained out of practice on Thursday for the Eagless, which is not a positive sign as it relates to his availability for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Fletcher suffered the concussion on Monday night and did not practice today, coach Chip Kelly said he really didn't have much information on Fletcher's availability for Sunday.
"I haven't heard anything yet," Kelly explained. "That's an ongoing process, especially with an injury such as Fletch's. That's all in the doctor's hands and there's also an independent that will see him, and if they say he can play, then we'll make some decisions as a coaching staff on where he is. But we still have got three training sessions, we have Thursday, we have Friday, and we have Saturday before we get into that final information in terms of who is going to be available on Sunday."
Slot corner Brandon Boykin will shift outside if Fletcher can't play against the Chargers Sunday.
In terms of other practice news: offensive tackle Dennis Kelly practiced with limitation and his status for Sunday is unknown.
Brandon Hughes is back with the team and practiced fully, indications are he will play on Sunday, and he could move into the slot of Fletcher is unable to play.
