Despite claims that he was indeed playing in Sunday's season finale, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will be inactive against the Redskins.
Eagles coach Andy Reid -- and McCoy -- both said Friday that he would play and attempt to go for the NFL rushing title despite a slight ankle sprain. Apparently, sometime between then and now Reid decided to sit the Pro Bowl tailback.
Ronnie Brown will start in place of McCoy.
The Eagles' other inactives are: cornerback Asante Samuel, defensive tackle Mike Patterson, defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, guard Julian Vandervelde, wide receiver Ron Johnson and linebacker Greg Lloyd.
