The Eagles' inactives for tonight's meeting with the Giants have been posted, and there are few surprises.
WR Riley Cooper had hoped to come back tonight from his collarbone injury, but that won't be until next week, it seems. RB Dion Lewis has yet to be activated this season. Joining them are OL Nate Menkin, DE Vinny Curry, LB Akeem Jordan, LT King Dunlap, and special teams ace Colt Anderson, who is battling a knee problem.
As previously announced, the Giants will be missing WR Hakeem Nicks (knee).
As expected, Eagles longsnapper Jon Dorenbos is playing despite a high ankle sprain suffered last week. This will be Dorenbos's 89th game in a row since he joined the Eagles in 2006.
Earlier, the Eagles officially retired Brian Dawkins' No. 20 in a brief ceremony at Headhouse Plaza, which was packed with fans -- even a few wearing Giants jerseys. Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie said Dawkins taught us how the game should be played. Fans chanted "Bri-an Daw-kins" and "Hall of Fame." There will be an onfield ceremony at halftime.
