Eagles to activate rookie Vinny Curry, keep Jake Scott at RG

From Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly: The Philadelphia Eagles will play rookie Vinny Curry for the first time in his career Sunday, and likely keep Jake Scott at right guard despite 2011 first-rounder Danny Watkins once again being healthy.

The first move is getting rookie defensive end Vinny Curry on the field. The second-round pick will be active for the first time this season on Monday night against Carolina, according to a team source.

Curry, a second-round pick out of Marshall, hasn’t been active for any of the first 10 games but has progressed in practice and will make his NFL debut against the Panthers at the Linc.

The source also said Andy Reid is leaning toward sticking with Jake Scott at right guard, even with Danny Watkins healthy enough to be active. After two early false start calls, the veteran Scott played fairly well in Sunday’s 31-6 loss to the Redskins despite being out of the NFL until the Eagles signed him just six days earlier.
