Young, Watkins inactive for Eagles

Vince Young‘s career with the Eagles begins with a stay on the inactive list.

The reserve quarterback officially was listed as out for Sunday’s season opener against the Rams as he deals with the effects of a strained hamstring.

Second-year pro Mike Kafka moves up to No. 2 on the depth chart behind starter Michael Vick.

Rookie guard Danny Watkins (knee) also is inactive, despite being listed as probable on Philadelphia’s final injury report. Watkins, the Eagles’ first-round draft pick in April, was displaced on the depth chart this week by recent arrival Kyle DeVan.

The Rams also deactivated their first-round pick, DE Robert Quinn, who wasn’t listed on the team’s final injury report.
