LANDOVER, Md. -- King Dunlap is out for Sunday's game against the Redskins and Winston Justice will make his first start of the season as a result.

Dunlap was slated to start at left tackle for the injured Jason Peters but will be sidelined because of back spasms. Dunlap tested out his back pre-game at FedEx Field with Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder but obviously didn't feel right.

With Dunlap out Todd Herremans will move from right tackle to left tackle and Justice will take his place at right tackle. Justice was inactive for the first four games of the season, but did dress last week as a reserve. He missed all of the preseason as he recovered from off-season knee surgery. He still doesn't appear to be 100 percent.

If Justice or Herremans were to get injured today, left guard Evan Mathis would be the emergency tackle.

Here are the other inactives for the Eagles: cornerback Curtis Marsh, safety Jarrad Page, linebacker Keenan Clayton, defensive end Trent Cole, guard Julian Vandervelde, Dunlap and Peters.

Darryl Tapp will start at right defensive end in place of Cole. Kurt Coleman will start at safety in place of Page. Quarterback Mike Kafka will be active a week after not dressing. The Eagles will dress all three quarterbacks: Michael Vick, Vince Young and Kafka.

Guard Kyle DeVan is active in case of an offensive line emergency. Rookie safety Jaiquawn Jarrett is active for the second time this season. He dressed two weeks ago against the 49ers.
