Eagles vs. Jets inactives: Sidney Jones is ACTIVE but reportedly won’t start

Who’s in and who’s out.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers Dan Powers-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their 2019 NFL Week 5 game against the New York Jets.

The following seven Eagles players have been ruled INACTIVE: DeSean Jackson, Ronald Darby, Avonte Maddox, Timmy Jernigan, Nate Herbig, Shareef Miller, and Nate Sudfeld.

Jackson, Darby, Maddox, and Jernigan were all ruled out on the Eagles’ final injury report.

Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, and Mack Hollins will start at wide receiver with Jackson out.

Darby and Maddox being out means the following five Eagles corners are active: Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, Orlando Scandrick, Craig James, and Ryan Lewis. Douglas is poised to start. NBC Sports Philadelpha’s Derrick Gunn reports Jones will NOT start, which indicates his hamstring is still bothering him. Jones was limited in practice all week before being ruled questonable on the team’s final injury report. Scandrick figures to play in the slot but could be forced into seeing playing time on the outside. Practice squad call-ups James and Lewis might have to take defensive snaps as well. Yikes!

Jernigan is missing his third straight game. Fletcher Cox, Hassan Ridgeway, and Akeem Spence are the Eagles’ three healthy defensive tackles.

Herbig and Miller haven’t been active for a single game this season. They’re essentially glorified practice squad members.

Sudfeld is the third string quarterback behind Carson Wentz and Josh McCown.

Duke Riley (No. 50) will make his Eagles debut today. The team traded for him this past Monday. He figures to contribute on special teams.

Daeshon Hall is active for his third game this season. Matt Pryor is active for just the second time this year.
