A few notes...

- After two games with three quarterbacks active, the Eagles are back to two quarterbacks with Edwards inactivated.

- The Eagles are banking on Dallas Reynolds avoiding an injury. Vallos is their backup center, and with him out, they have no centers on the gameday roster. One of the other linemen would need to bounce inside.

- Riley Cooper is a healthy scratch. The team is easing him back from a broken collarbone.
