Inactives means Calvin could return

The Eagles released their list of inactives and the names on the list give an idea of what coach Andy Reid has planned for Sunday's Packers game.

Inactives means Calvin could return

The Eagles released their list of inactives and the names on the list give an idea of what coach Andy Reid has planned for Sunday's Packers game.

But first the list: linebackers Jamar Chaney and Keenan Clayton, tackle Austin Howard, guard Max Jean-Gilles, defensive ends Darryl Tapp and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and guard Reggie Wells. Mike Kakfa is the emergency third quarterback.

One notable missing player from that list is cornerback Jorrick Calvin. The Eagles now have a whopping six cornerbacks dressed which likely means Calvin could do some returning. Reid was coy on Friday as to whether Ellis Hobbs and DeSean Jackson would return kicks and punts. But having Calvin in uniform means one or both of those guys gets the day off.

The Eagles also didn't dress three offensive linemen which raised eyebrows considering the health of that unit. Guard/center Mike McGlynn and tackle King Dunlap are the only reserves behind starting tackles Jason Peters and Winston Justice, guards Todd Herremans and Nick Cole and center Jamaal Jackson.

More coverage

It wasn't a surprise that Tapp didn't dress but this really tells you what the Eagles think of the player they traded away Chris Clemons, and more important, a fourth-round pick for.

Check back for more from the game.
