Eagles-Cowboys Inactives: Alshon Jeffery ACTIVE, Tyron Smith OUT

New, comments
NFL: Denver Broncos at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Week 11 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is ACTIVE despite being ruled questionable for Sunday’s night game. Jeffery was added to Philly’s injury report during the week due to a lingering ankle issue. Reports indicated he’d play on Sunday night and now we know that’s the case.

Starting cornerback Ronald Darby is officially active for the first time since suffering a dislocated ankle in Week 1. He’ll start at left corner, which means Jalen Mills will move to the right side. It’ll be interesting to see how the Eagles handle his playing time.

Tight end Zach Ertz is also active after missing the Eagles’ Week 9 game due to a hamstring injury.

Wendell Smallwood is INACTIVE despite not being listed on the injury report. Four running backs are active ahead of him: Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement, and Kenjon Barner. Not a great sign for the 2016 fifth-round pick.

New Eagles signings Dannell Ellerbe and Will Beatty are both inactive after joining Philadelphia earlier this week. They’ll have a better chance to be active moving forward as they start to pick up the playbook. Especially in Ellerbe’s case.

Philadelphia Eagles Inactive List

RB Wendell Smallwood - Fifth string running back.

OT Will Beatty - Depth offensive tackle.

LB Dannell Ellerbe - Depth linebacker.

QB Nate Sudfeld - Third string quarterback.

DE Steven Means - Fifth defensive end.

DT Elijah Qualls - Fifth defensive tackle.

WR Shelton Gibson - Sixth wide receiver.

Dallas Cowboys Inactive List

Cowboys starting left tackle Tyron Smith is officially OUT, as expected. Byron Bell will start in his place. Bell allowed two sacks in one quarter last week. He originally couldn’t beat out the guy who allowed five sacks in three quarters (Chaz Green).

Other key Dallas absences include star running back Ezekiel Elliott (suspended), starting middle linebacker Sean Lee (injured), starting safety Jeff Heath (injured), and kicker Dan Bailey (injured). The Eagles need to take advantage.

Cowboys official inactive list: Tyron Smith, Sean Lee, Dan Bailey, Jeff Heath, Darren McFadden, Daniel Ross, Blake Jarwin
