Eagles Inactives: Dorial Green-Beckham out, Jordan Matthews in

A wide receiver swap we can get behind.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Dorial Green-Beckham is officially inactive for today’s game against Washington. He’s dealing with an abdomen injury and missed practice all week, so his status was expected.

In Green-Beckham’s absence, however, Jordan Matthews will be active after missing the Eagles’ Week 13 loss to the Bengals. Matthews, of course, is the much more productive of the two wide receivers. It would be nice if Carson Wentz could have a full compliment of wideouts, but if the Eagles must swap these two players, this is the direction they would like the exchange to go.

Ryan Mathews, who missed last week’s game, is also active. He’s missed two games with injuries this season, and effectively missed a third in Week 3, so his production has been severely hampered.

Here are the rest of the Eagles’ inactives:

OL Brandon Brooks

Unexpected. Brooks was announced as inactive Sunday morning.

RB Kenjon Barner

Unexpected. Likely the move the Eagles decided to make because Mathews is healthy and Brooks is out.

OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai

Expected. Dealing with a knee injury which has sidelined him for weeks.

OL Dillon Gordon

Expected. Backup lineman.

OL Josh Andrews

Expected. Backup lineman.

DT Taylor Hart

Expected. Dealing with an ankle injury suffered in practice a couple weeks ago.

LB Kamu Grugier-Hill

Unexpected. Backup linebacker and special teams player.
