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.
