The Eagles have announced their inactives’ for this evening’s clash against the Washington Redskins.
#Eagles inactives for #WASvsPHI: CB Darby, WR Gibson, DT Hamilton, LB Kendricks, DE Means, DT Qualls, G Warmack
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) October 23, 2017
The big name here is obviously Ronald Darby. The former Bills corner returned to practice earlier this week but with no real emergency need at corner, the Birds’ have decided to remain patient with their newest signing and allow him to full heal before potentially returning to action next week.
The other big hit is Mychal Kendricks. After amassing a stunning team-leading 17 tackles last week, Kendricks is out having been limited in practice all week. It’s good news then that Jordan Hicks is going to be back on the field tonight. The Eagles linebacker depth could be thinning out if the calf injury of Hicks re-aggrivates, but the loss of Kendricks who has been a tremendous role-player for the Eagles certainly hurts.
Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao are both at full health which leaves Justin Hamilton and Elijah Qualls back out in the cold. Timmy Jernigan and Beau Allen will be the other two DT’s in action.
Isaac Seumalo is also active tonight with Chance Warmack taking the backseat. Stefen Wisniewski will start at LG after winning that battle firmly over the last few weeks.
