The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their 2021 NFL Week 5 game against the Carolina Panthers.

The following five Eagles players have been ruled INACTIVE: Lane Johnson, Gardner Minshew, Jack Anderson, Marlon Tuipulotu, and Mac McCain.

Johnson is missing his second straight game due to an undisclosed “personal matter.” Jordan Mailata, active for the first time since Week 2, is expected to start in his absence. This means the Eagles are keeping Andre Dillard at left tackle. The entire starting offensive line projects as follows:

Left tackle — Andre Dillard
Left guard — Landon Dickerson
Center — Jason Kelce
Right guard — Jack Driscoll
Right tackle — Jordan Mailata

Le’Raven Clark is active for his first game with the Eagles after being temporarily elevated from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement. He could be the swing tackle behind Dillard and Mailata.
