Eagles inactives; another Jake Scott start

PHILADELPHIA -- No surprises on the list of inactive players for the Philadelphia Eagles for tonight's "Monday Night Football" game against the Carolina Panthers. Starting quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are inactive with their concussions. Rookie Nick Foles makes his second straight start at quarterback, and rookie Bryce Brown starts at running back for McCoy.

Veteran guard Jake Scott, who started last week's game against the Redskins after signing a few days earlier, gets his second straight start at right guard in place of 2011 first-round pick Danny Watkins, who is active but not starting. Once again, left guard Evan Mathis is the only preseason-projected starting offensive lineman still starting for the Eagles.

Active for the first time this year is rookie defensive end Vinny Curry, a second-round pick for whom Eagles fans have been clamoring as the Eagles' pass rush as slumped through the season. Curry gives the Eagles five active defensive ends for the game, so the issue of which guys will actually play (and how much) remains a mystery.
