With kickoff only a little over an hour away, let’s take a look at who won’t be suiting up for the Eagles this week as they face the Atlanta Falcons.
T Winston Justice – Still injured, not ready to play yet.
DE Darryl Tapp – Suffering a pectoral injury.
LB Akeem Jordan – Left last weeks game with an injury.
CB Curtis Marsh – Caught up in CB depth.
S Jaiquawn Jarrett – Caught up in S depth.
QB Vince Young – Still recovering from that hamstring injury.
G Julian Vandervelde – Caught up in OL depth.
DE Philip Hunt is making his NFL debut since Tapp is out. He should contributor as a pass rusher in obvious passing situations.
RG Danny Watkins is active. Don’t expect him to start at RG (Kyle DeVan will be doing that), but he will be on the bench for depth.
CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and LT Jason Peters (who were listed on the injury report this week) WILL play. Good news.
UPDATE – Falcons Inactives: CB Walls, RB Smith, LB Adkins, C McClure, G Johnson, DT Babineaux and DE Matthews.
Here’s to a good game! Go Eagles.
