Eagles DE Phillip Hunt among inactives

Defensive end Phillip Hunt is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, although that still doesn't mean Vinny Curry is active. Curry is also down; the Eagles will dress four defensive ends and five defensive tackles for the second consecutive week.

Defensive end Phillip Hunt is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, although that still doesn't mean Vinny Curry is active. Curry is also down; the Eagles will dress four defensive ends and five defensive tackles for the second consecutive week.

The other inactives are quarterback Trent Edwards, wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, guard Danny Watkins, offensive lineman Nate Menkin and runnin gback Chris Polk.

A few quick notes...

- Gilyard (hamstring), Polk (toe) and Watkins (ankle) were all declared out earlier this week.

- Menkin still has not been active this season. Offensive guard Julian Vandervelde is active in his first game. That means Matt Tennant and Vandervelde, both interior linemen, are the backup linemen.

- Dion Lewis gets another chance to dress on gameday. He's been in and out throughout the season.

- LeSean McCoy, who was sick this week, is active as expected.
