Eagles/Redskins Inactives: Redskins missing stars

The Eagles and Redskins have announced their inactive players for today's NFC East matchup:

Eagles: OL Stacy Andrews, WR Kevin Curtis, RB P.J. Hill, LB Akeem Jordan, QB Kevin Kolb, OL Mike McGlynn, CB Geoffrey Pope, RB Brian Westbrook

Redskins: QB Richard Bartel, TE Chris Cooley, OL Paul Fanaika, CB Deangelo Hall, DT Albert Haynesworth, LB Robert Henson, RB Clinton Portis, DE Renaldo Wynn

The Eagles inactives aren't surprising as Westbrook, Curtis and Jordan are still dealing with injuries. There was some worry about Asante Samuel not being able to play but clearly his neck injury isn't going to keep him off the field.

For the Redskins, their inactive list is a basically a list of all of their best players. Their big man in the middle, Albert Haynesworth, will be out which should allow the Eagles to actually run the ball at will. With both Portis out and Betts on IR, Rock Cartwright is the starting running back. Other notable stars out for the Skins are Cooley and Hall, both former Pro Bowlers.

There are no excuses for the Eagles today. The Redskins are missing most of their key players so the Birds should be able to roll right over them. Of course, we know how the Eagles like to make things interesting! GO BIRDS!
