Eagles Inactives: Bell Starting, Edwards Active

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Eagles inactives have been announced, and there are no big surprises.

Riley Cooper, Dion Lewis, Colt Anderson, Akeem Jordan, King Dunlap, Nate Menkin and Vinny Curry are all inactive for tonight's game against the Giants.

With Dunlap out, Demetress Bell will start for the 2nd straight week. In place of Jordan, Jamar Chaney will get his first start of the season at the WILL.

One interesting name that is active tonight is Trent Edwards. Edwards has not been active since Week 1, and with all of the rumors swirling that Michael Vick might be on a short leash, Edwards could be active in case Nick Foles has to go in and things spiral out of control. Just a theory, but not a huge stretch in my mind.

Of course Dion Lewis is inactive again. Carrying 4 running backs has really worked out for the Eagles.

For the Giants, the inactives are Hakeem Nicks, David Diehl, Jayron Hosley, Keith Rivers, Adewale Ojomo, Mitch Petrus, and Adrien Robinson.
