Kiko Alonso, Josh Huff active for Eagles-Jets preseason game

At least two of Philadelphia's key players are active for the Eagles vs. New York Jets game on Thursday night.

According to the team, Kiko Alonso is active. Alonso was also "active" last week but didn't actually suit up. It's expected the Eagles linebacker will make his debut for real this time around, but there's still no guarantee. It's unclear how long Alonso will play, if at all, but one could figure he will see a series or two or three if he does suit up.

Second-year wide receiver Josh Huff is also active after missing the Packers game last Saturday. Huff has only been targeted twice this summer so this could be a good opportunity for him to get more looks in the passing attack.

Second-year kicker Cody Parkey is also active, but it's unclear if he's healthy enough to play. The fact that the Eagles didn't waive backup punter/kicker Kip Smith earlier this week seems to indicate Parkey might not be 100% yet.

Here are the 27 players who are not expected to play. Most of them are starters/key players. It's at least a little interesting to see first round pick Nelson Agholor inactive. That seems to bode well for him.
