Who’s in and who’s out.

The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The following seven players have been ruled OUT: Timmy Jernigan, Avonte Maddox, Jordan Hicks, Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor, Chandon Sullivan and Nate Sudfeld.

Jernigan and Maddox are the most notable names on this list. Both players were ruled questionable to play despite not practicing all week.

Missing Jernigan isn’t ideal for an Eagles defense that’s tasked with stopping Ezekiel Elliott. Philadelphia’s four active defensive tackles include Fletcher Cox, Haloti Ngata, Treyvon Hester, and Bruce Hector. Hector was called up from the practice squad on Saturday.

Maddox’s absence means Corey Graham will continue to get a lot of playing time. It also ensures Cre’Von LeBlanc will remain as the nickel cornerback.

Michael Bennett is ACTIVE despite being ruled questionable on the final injury report. Bennett was a full participant in Friday’s practice so it’s not a surprise that he’s good to go.

Jalen Mills isn’t on the inactives list because the Eagles ended his season by placing him on injured reserve. Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas will start at cornerback.

Jason Peters is active despite the fact he did not practice all week.

Rookie offensive lineman Matt Pryor is three games away from being a healthy scratch for the entire 2018 season.

Chance Warmack is active for the sixth time this year. A little interesting the Eagles decided to keep Warmack active and Chandon Sullivan as a healthy scratch after they did the opposite on Monday night.
