The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers.

The good news is that starting defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is officially ACTIVE despite being ruled questionable to play in this game. Cox hasn’t played since suffering a calf injury in Week 3. His return is a big boost for the Eagles’ defense. It’ll be interesting to see if the Eagles limit his snaps.

Backup defensive tackle Beau Allen is also ACTIVE. Allen had been starting place of Cox but he suffered a foot injury in Week 5. Allen was questionable to play in this game after being limited in practice all week.

With Cox and Allen active, the Eagles have chosen to keep Elijah Qualls out as a healthy scratch. It’s worth noting Justin Hamilton is active over him.

Running back Wendell Smallwood is OUT. He hasn’t practiced since suffering a knee injury in Week 4. The full extent of his injury isn’t clear but he’s missed two games now.

Lane Johnson is obviously inactive after being ruled out on Wednesday. Halapoulivaati Vaitai is set to start in his place at right tackle.

Offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo is active after being a healthy scratch the past few weeks. Doug Pederson said he’s going to be the backup offensive tackle if Jason Peters or Vaitai get hurt during tonight’s game.

Safety Jaylen Watkins is still inactive. He’s been a full participant in practice last week but he was ruled questionable heading into this game.

Here’s a look at all seven inactive names, along with some brief analysis.
