Safety Colt Anderson, the only injured Eagle left that was questionable for tonight's game against the New York Giants, was listed as inactive.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper was also listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, but he said then that he would not play. Cooper has yet to play this season as he recovers from a broken collarbone.

Long snapper Jon Dorenbos was questionable with an ankle sprain, but when the Eagles did not activate long snapper Kyle Nelson from the practice squad on Saturday it was evident that Dorenbos was deemed healthy enough to play tonight.

Joining Anderson and Cooper on the Eagles inactive list, are tackle King Dunlap, linebacker Akeem Jordan, running back Dion Lewis, defensive end Vinny Curry and tackle Nate Menkin.
