While two defensive starters return, Isaac Seumalo among seven Eagles inactive for week four


The Eagles have listed their inactive for this afternoon’s game against the Chargers and while most of the players sidelined are injured, there is one big surprise.

Isaac Seumalo, who was named the teams’ starting left guard in week one against Washington, is a healthy scratch. Chance Warmack is once again active along with Stefen Wisniewski, with Wis likely getting the start after impressing during the Eagles’ week three win over the Giants. The decision to bench Seumalo completely is a strange one, but it’s better to at least accept that he may not be ready just yet as opposed to depending on him against such a dominant pass-rush. Either way, it’s hardly encouraging.

Both Rodney McLeod and Jordan Hicks return to action. Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins are both still sidelined in the secondary, but the Eagles at least see the return of their starting Safety.

Up front, Steven Means is active for the first time this season while it will be Elijah Qualls, Beau Allen, and Justin Hamilton combining to make a committee effort in the absence of the injured Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao.
