Finally some good news for the last place Phillies

From Comcast SportsNetDENVER (AP) -- Phillies ace Roy Halladay is scheduled to be activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and start the game that night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The right-hander has been sidelined by a strained right lat muscle since May 28. Team officials announced the plans Sunday. Halladay passed the final test in his six-week rehab when he threw a bullpen session Saturday with no problems. He told reporters following that session that he felt fine. The team will have to make a corresponding roster move to make room for Halladay once he's activated. Halladay is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts this season. He left his May 27 start against St. Louis early because of shoulder soreness. A subsequent MRI revealed the muscle strain in the back of his right shoulder.

Redskins fans go crazy after refs miss unnecessary roughness call involving Brandon Scherff

Last week vs. the 49ers, Brandon Scherff was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness after the guard pushed a San Fran defender to the ground around the same time that the whistle blown.

A week later against the Eagles, Scherff was the one who was shoved. But this time, there was no penalty.

Derek Barnett played the role of aggressor in the Week 7 matchup. On a third-and-9, Kirk Cousins was hit as he threw, and players pursued the loose ball with some thinking it was a fumble. That's when Barnett came up and laid a late hit on Scherff, sending him to the turf.

Here's what it looked like:

The refs were chucking flags left and right in the early stages of the rivalry game. This one, though, somehow wasn't called.

Redskins Week 7 Inactives: Bashaud Breeland is good to go vs. the Eagles

There are no big surprises on the Redskins’ inactive list Monday before the Eagles matchup:

  • CB Josh Norman
  • OL Tyler Catalina
  • OL Ty Nsekhe
  • DL A.J. Francis
  • TE Jeremy Sprinkle
  • OLB Josh Harvey-Clemons
  • S Deshazor Everett

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who suffered a knee injury last Sunday against the 49ers, is active. With Norman out, that is very good news for the Redskins’ chances.

Norman was declared out on the final injury report. He reportedly wanted to play with a broken rib that he sustained on October 3 against the Chiefs. But the medical staff would not clear him to play and Norman will miss his second consecutive game. Quinton Dunbar will start in his place.

Reserve offensive linemen Catalina (concussion) and Nsekhe (core muscle) also were declared out on Saturday.

Starting RB Rob Kelley returns after missing the 49ers game with an ankle injury.
