Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
The Eagles have released their inactives for the evening and there's a few surprises both ways. The good news is that Fletcher Cox & Dallas Reynolds are active. Both were listed as questionable during the week, but will be able to go.
With Cox, the Eagles are getting arguably their best defensive lineman back. With Reynolds, they're not exactly getting their best lineman back, but if he's starting at center, that means they don't need to start Evan Mathis there and reshuffle half the line.
It's kind of a surprise to see what the Eagles are doing at WR. Marvin McNutt & Greg Salas are both inactive, which means that with DeSean Jackson out for the season, they'll be going with just 4 WRs tonight. Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, Riley Cooper & Damaris Johnson.
Greg Salas was signed last week and Marvin McNutt was elevated from the practice squad this week. Perhaps Salas isn't up to speed on the offense, but McNutt has been here all season and should be ready to go.
The only other healthy inactive is Nate Menkin, who is the only center on the roster other than Reynolds.
