Eagles Inactives: Corey Graham playing; just 6 players to sit out

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Because they have just 52 players on their active roster, the Eagles needed to list just six players as inactive on Sunday morning.

Ronald Darby (ankle), Destiny Vaeao (wrist), Shelton Gibson, Chance Warmack, Marcus Johnson and Steven Means are inactive against the Chiefs this afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.

Corey Graham, who came into the weekend listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, is active. That will allow Malcolm Jenkins to play at times as the Eagles' nickel cornerback because Graham can take over at safety.

Johnson is inactive after playing in the opener.

Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) was added to the Injured Reserve on Friday, so he obviously isn't playing and doesn't need to be on the inactive list.

This will be the first NFL game for second-round CB Rasul Douglas, sixth-round pick DT Elijah Qualls and recently-acquired kicker Jake Elliott, who replaced Caleb Sturgis (hip). Sturgis is on IR.

After keeping just three listed cornerbacks active last week when Darby went down, the Eagles have four active on Sunday: Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson, Douglas and McDougle.

After having just two draft picks active in the season opener, the Eagles will have four active -- Derek Barnett, Douglas, Mack Hollins and Qualls -- on Sunday.

Here are the Chiefs' inactives: QB Tyler Bray, CB D.J. White, LB Reggie Ragland, OL Jordan Devey, OL Parker Ehinger, WR Jehu Chesson, DL Jarvis Jenkins.
