Eagles vs. Falcons inactives: Daeshon Hall is a healthy scratch once again

Looking at who’s in and who’s out.

NFL: Preseason-Tennessee Titans at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their 2019 NFL Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The following seven Eagles players have been ruled INACTIVE: Nate Sudfeld, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Jordan Mailata, Nate Herbig, Matt Pryor, Shareef Miller, and Daeshon Hall.

Grugier-Hill and Mailata were officially ruled out on Friday’s final injury report. Sudfeld was ruled doubtful to play.

With Grugier-Hill out, Nigel Bradham and Zach Brown will be the Eagles’ two primary linebackers.

Sudfeld’s absence ensures Josh McCown will be the Eagles’ backup quarterback behind Carson Wentz.

Herbig, Pryor, Miller, and Hall are all healthy scratches.

It’s disappointing to see Hall inactive. The Eagles’ pass rush didn’t look awesome in Week 1 so they could seemingly use him. Not sure why Josh Sweat — who logged zero pressures in 10 pass rush snaps last week — is such a better option.

The Eagles only have two tight ends active: Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. 2019 first-round pick Andre Dillard will likely serve as a blocking tight end in certain situations.

Defensive tackle Akeem Spence and cornerback Craig James are active after being signed to the 53-man roster earlier this week.
