Cold Start

The inactives are available. Todd Herremans will start at left guard despite an ankle injury and Reggie Brown returns to the starting lineup at wide receiver.

Cold Start


Updating previously: The Eagles, given the chance to control their playoff destiny by San Diego's victory at Tampa, came out misfiring.

   Little mistakes, on a gray, wind-blown late afternoon at FedEx Field, doomed the first three Eagles drives --- a Greg Lewis penalty here, a Donovan Mc Nabb decision to try to flip a pass to Dan Klecko rather than run there, a really egregious L.J. Smith drop somewhere else.

In the meantime, the stands were dead and the Redskins weren't up to anything special. They missed a 54-yard field goal, but they were protecting quarterback Jason Campbell pretty well, and as we were typing this they put together a painful-to-watch 16-play, 72-yard drive for a 33-yard Shuan Suisham field goal. Suisham got to kick the ball because Quintin Mikell dropped the same interception twice.

Earlier:  Eagles left guard Todd Herremans is active and apparently will start today. Herremans injured a shoulder in last Monday's victory over the Browns and then he sprained an ankle in Thursday's practice, causing Eagles coach Andy Reid to list Herremans as "questionable" for today.

Also, as predicted, wideouts Kevin Curtis (calf) and Hank Baskett (knee) are out. Reggie Brown, inactive the past two games and catchless since Nov, 16, will start at wideout opposite DeSean Jackson.

For the Redskins, offensive tackle Jon Jansen is still out with a left MCL sprain.

Stay tuned for updates.
