The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Week 16 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Starting cornerback Jalen Mills and starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks are ACTIVE after being ruled questionable to play on the final injury report. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that starting left guard Stefen Wisniewski is still OUT. There’s a feeling that he could play if he really needed to, but the team is taking a conservative approach to his recovery with the playoffs in mind. Chance Warmack will start at left guard for the second week in a row.
Rasul Douglas is ACTIVE after being a healthy scratch against the Giants last week.
Joe Walker is a healthy scratch at linebacker. That’s a minor surprise. Dannell Ellerbe is active over him.
Will Beatty is active once again with Wis out.
Both Shelton Gibson AND Marcus Johnson are inactive, which means the Eagles enter this game with only four wide receivers.
Wendell Smallwood is a healthy scratch for the sixth game in a row.
