No surprises among the Eagles' inactives. Punt returner/wideout Damaris Johnson is sitting out for the second game in a row, even though special teams coordinator Bobby April said Thursday he does not blame Johnson for the Birds' poor return results.

Also inactive are third quarterback Trent Edwards, DE Vinny Curry, OL Nate Menkin, LB Jamar Chaney, RG Danny Watkins and RB Dion Lewis. Watkins is out with an ankle injury. As expected, his place will be taken by rookie Dennis Kelly, making his first start.

Stay tuned.
