LANDOVER, Md. -- Max Jean-Gilles is out for tonight's game against the Redskins. The Eagles guard was questionable coming in with a right shoulder strain. Jean-Gilles, who had started the last four games at right guard, wasn't expected to start, but was eligible to rotate with either Nick Cole on the right or Todd Herremans on the left.

Herremans is playing in his first game of the season after sitting out the last two months with a stress fracture in his foot. Stacy Andrews is available at guard.

Kevin Kolb is the emergency third quarterback for the second straight week. Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick are the Eagles' two active quarterbacks.

The other inactives are: cornerback Dimitri Patterson (quadriceps), linebacker Joe Mays, guard Mike McGlynn, wide receiver Kevin Curtis (knee), defensive end Victor Abiamiri (knee) and linebacker Omar Gaither (foot).
