The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their 2020 NFL Week 2 game against the Los Angles Rams.
The following seven Eagles players have been ruled INACTIVE: Alshon Jeffery, Nate Sudfeld, Genard Avery, Jason Huntley, Sua Opeta, and Jamon Brown.
The big news is that Jalen Hurts is ACTIVE after being a healthy scratch in Week 1. Dave Spadaro reports Hurts is now the No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz, so the No. 53 overall has already leapfrogged Nate Sudfeld on the depth chart. Will we see the Eagles use Hurts in any special packages? To be determined.
Carson Wentz is entrenched as @Eagles starter. Jalen Hurts can give them a different option if a couple situations present themselves. Hurts' role model has been Cam Newton. He's not 6-5 but he is a load w good arm. This is still Wentz's job. Do not buy into anything but that. https://t.co/YwFoZKbWO1— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) September 20, 2020
Jeffery is the only inactive player due to injury. Miles Sanders, Lane Johnson, Javon Hargrave, and Derek Barnett are all back in the lineup after missing Week 1. Brandon Graham is also active despite being listed questionable on the final injury report.
Avery has been demoted to being a healthy scratch after previously playing last week. The Eagles decided they’d rather get a look at 2020 seventh-round pick Casey Toohill instead. Toohill easily outperformed Avery in training camp. Graham, Barnett, Josh Sweat, and Toohill are the four active defensive ends with Vinny Curry going on injured reserve.
Huntley played one offensive snap in the Eagles’ Week 1 game after the team claimed him off waivers from the Detroit Lions. Sanders, Boston Scott, and Corey Clement are the Eagles’ three active running backs.
Opeta and Brown are healthy scratches behind eight active Eagles offensive linemen. Brown only joined the team this week so that’s not surprising. Nate Herbig will start his second career game at right guard today but he could eventually be replaced if he struggles.
Trevor Williams is active for his first game with the Eagles after being called up from the practice squad on Saturday.
