Brandon Boykin Among 6 Eagles Out

A number of Eagles will not be available for the most extensive preseason game of the lot.

Bo Wulf of PhiladelphiaEagles.com has provided a list of players who will not be participating in tonight's game with the Steelers.

Topping the list is cornerback Brandon Boykin, who will be sidelined with an apparent leg cramps. Reportedly, Boykin attempted to work out among trainers, but exited the field, pointing at the back of his leg.

The receiving corps is also down two players. Josh Huff was expected to miss the game with his shoulder sprain, but Brad Smith (hamstring) will also sit out tonight. Jordan Matthews will be expected to get more reps with the starters from the slot position.

Chris Polk and Jake Knott remain sidelined with hamstring injuries, while Julian Vandervelde is still mending from back surgery.
