Eagles Inactives

Eagles inactives: Eagles are light on WRs and RBs

Eagles inactives: Eagles are light on WRs and RBs

Jordan Howard is officially inactive for Sunday’s game, but just a couple days after re-joining the Eagles, Jay Ajayi is active. 

We’ll see what kind of role the Eagles have for Ajayi with such little time to get him prepared. It’s more likely Miles Sanders and Boston Scott carry the load against the Patriots. 

Howard (shoulder) has a stinger from the Bears game and still hasn’t been cleared for contact, so he can’t play. Darren Sproles also went on IR this week, so Sanders is the only running back still healthy from the opening-day roster. 

Meanwhile, Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was ruled out Friday, so expect JJ Arcega-Whiteside to have a bigger role today. 

Here are the Eagles’ inactives: 

Alshon Jeffery (ankle)
Nigel Bradham (ankle)
Jordan Howard (shoulder)
Nate Herbig 
Sharif Miller
Nate Sudfeld 
Daeshon Hall 

The Eagles have just three running backs and four receivers today. One of those receivers in Jordan Matthews, who signed earlier in the week. So expect to see a lot of 12 personnel with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. 

Sidney Jones is active for this game after being a healthy scratch last week. 

Undrafted offensive lineman Herbig has been inactive all year.

Eagles inactives: Boston Scott active for first time this year

Eagles inactives: Boston Scott active for first time this year

MINNEAPOLIS — After getting called up on Friday, running back Boston Scott is active against the Vikings in Minnesota. 

With Darren Sproles still out and with Corey Clement now on IR, the Eagles were down to just two healthy running backs until calling Scott up from the practice squad. The 24-year-old running back played in two games for the Eagles last year, returning four kicks, but didn’t return a punt or play on offense. 

Without Sproles, Clement or DeSean Jackson, the Eagles will have Nelson Agholor return punts today. 

No surprises on the Eagles’ list of inactives: 

Ronald Darby (hamstring)
DeSean Jackson (abdomen) 
Timmy Jernigan (foot)
Avonte Maddox (concussion, neck) 
Darren Sproles (quad) 
Nate Herbig 
Shareef Miller 

Those first five players were ruled out when the officially injury report came out Friday. 

Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld is active, but won’t play barring disaster. Rookies Herbig and Miller have been inactive for every game this season.

Eagles inactives: Sidney Jones active against Jets

Eagles inactives: Sidney Jones active against Jets

Sidney Jones (hamstring) is active for Sunday’s game against the Jets. 

As rough as this season has been for Jones, that’s still good news. Because without Jones, the Eagles wouldn’t have very good options. Jones had his right hamstring heavily wrapped during pregame warmups. 

Last week in Green Bay, Jones played just 10 snaps before he left the game with yet another hamstring injury. After being a limited participant in practice all week, Jones was listed as questionable coming into the weekend. 

He was the only Eagles player listed as questionable. 

Here’s the full list of Eagles’ inactives for today’s game: 

DeSean Jackson (abdomen)
Tim Jernigan (foot)
Ronald Darby (hamstring)
Avonte Maddox (concussion, neck) 
Nate Herbig
Shareef Miller 
Nate Sudfeld 

The top four on that list were ruled out on Friday. Head coach Doug Pederson said the injury isn’t any more severe than they first thought, but that they want to be careful because of the injury and the type of player Jackson is — a runner. 

Cornerback Ryan Lewis, who was added to the practice squad at the beginning of the week and promoted to the active roster on Friday is active. The Eagles have five cornerbacks active today. Lewis and last week’s hero, Craig James, are the backups this week. 

Sudfeld was also inactive last week. Josh McCown is this team’s backup quarterback.
