As expected, the Eagles didn't dress a number of starters for today's game against the Cowboys.

Several are injured and won't play: quarterback Michael Vick (quadriceps), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot), cornerback Asante Samuel (knee), tackle Winston Justice (knee) and linebacker Stewart Bradley (elbow).
