The following Eagles players were determined to be inactive: Derek Burnett, Dew Cryley, Richard Rodgers, JJ Arsega Whiteside, John High Tower, Jason Huntley, Nate Sadfeld.
Burnett unexpectedly popped up on a report of an injury on Friday due to a calf problem and was unable to travel to Texas with the team. When Burnett comes out and Josh Sweat is on the injured list, the Eagles lose to Brandon Graham, Vinnie Curry, Jenard Avery (!), And defensive end Joe Ostman. Young men need to step up.
Due to Riley’s absence, the Eagles will remain on the linebacker with Alex Singleton, TJ Edwards, Shawn Bradley and Joe Bachy. Edwards and Bradley expect to see more play time this week. Singletons are still top linebackers.
With the Rogers out, the Eagles promoted Caleb Wilson from the practice team to the third tight end after Dallas Gedelt and Zack Erz.
JJAW is the third healthy scratch of the season. The second round of 2019 picks will be the seventh receiver in the ranking after Gregward, Alchon Jeffery, Jaylen Leaguer, DeSean Jackson, Kezwatkins and Travisfulgum.
High Tower is a healthy scratch for three consecutive games. Obviously in the kennel.
Huntley is the fifth running back after Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard (promoted from the practice team for this week’s game), Boston Scott and Corey Clement.
Sadfeld has been inactive since the first week.
Fletcher Cox and Cameron Johnston are both active, despite being judged suspicious in the Eagles’ final report of injury.
The aforementioned DeSean Jackson is back in his first game since the 8th week. You would imagine a 34 year old receiver might be on the pitch count.
