The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins.
Starting cornerback Ronald Darby is officially OUT, as expected. There’s a chance he returns to the field next week, however.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is also OUT. He suffered a hamstring injury during practice this week. With Kendricks out, Najee Goode will play in his place. Eagles rookie fifth-round pick Nate Gerry is also ACTIVE for the first time in his career. Philly signed him from their practice squad to their active roster just earlier this week.
The two other players ruled questionable on the Eagles’ final injury report are all active: running back Wendell Smallwood and linebacker Jordan Hicks.
Smallwood is back for the first time since suffering a knee injury in Week 4. He’s the team’s best receiving back so his presence gives Carson Wentz another option in the passing attack.
In an interesting development at left guard, Chance Warmack is back to being a healthy scratch. The Eagles activated him for the first time in Week 3. He made one start and split time with Stefen Wisniewski before progressively losing snaps. With Warmack down, the more versatile Isaac Seumalo is active. Good job, Eagles.
Shelton Gibson, Justin Hamilton, Steven Means, and Elijah Qualls are also inactive as depth players.
Here’s a look at all seven inactive names.
Philadelphia Eagles Inactive List
CB Ronald Darby - Injury.
LB Mychal Kendricks - Injury.
OG Chance Warmack - Backup guard.
DE Steven Means - Fifth defensive end.
DT Justin Hamilton - Fifth defensive tackle.
DT Elijah Qualls - Sixth defensive tackle.
WR Shelton Gibson - Sixth wide receiver.
Washington Redskins Inactive List
Starting cornerback Josh Norman is OUT for Washington, as expected. Fellow starting corner Bashaud Breeland is ACTIVE but he’s wearing a knee brace and doesn’t appear to be 100% healthy. The Eagles might look to test him early on.
