The Eagles have released their official list of inactives ahead of today’s matchup with San Francisco.
#SFvsPHI Inactives: CB Darby, WR Gibson, DT Hamilton, T Hart, LB Hicks, DE Means, DT Qualls.
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) October 29, 2017
To the surprise of very few, Ronald Darby is still sidelined with the ankle injury that has forced him to miss close to half of the season. Although Darby has been a limited participant in practice over the last two weeks, his status has not changed from questionable during that span as the team continue to preach patience.
Elsewhere, Justin Hamilton and rookie Elijah Qualls are inactive as Destiny Vaeao fulfills his previous rotational role for the second consecutive game. Cox, Jernigan, Allen and Vaeao make up the DT rotation as they did at the start of the season.
Jordan Hicks is listed as inactive while the team wait to designate him to IR or make a corresponding roster move.
Most importantly however, recently re-signed OL Taylor Hart is inactive. This means that both Chance Warmack and Isaac Seumalo are active today, as the Eagles offensive line depth is tested with Peters missing the rest of the season. Seumalo is listed as the backup tackle while Halapoulivaati Vaitai makes his first start of the year. Chance Warmack takes Seumalo’s previous spot as the backup interior guard.
