Eagles inactives include quarterback Vince Young, who warmed up with the team 2 hours before the game but who still is not recovered from a preseason hamstring injury; linebacker Akeem Jordan (shoulder), defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral muscle), right tackle Winston Justice (knee), rookie safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, rookie cornerback Corey Marsh and rookie guard Julian Vandervelde.

First-round pick Danny Watkins is active for the first time in his NFL career after being inactive last week.

The Eagles dressed only two backup offensive lineman last week, but went with three last week. That could be because of the injury that Jason Peters suffered this week. He was listed as questionable but is active and will start.

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, also listed as questionable, is active.
