Eagles/Falcons Inactives: Atlanta is hurting

The Eagles and Falcons have announced their inactives for this week:

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

Falcons: LB Spencer Adkins, LT Sam Baker, RG Harvey Dahl, WR Michael Jenkins, DL Trey Lewis, S Charlie Peprah, QB Matt Ryan, RB Michael Turner

There are no surprises from the Eagles this week as Jackson, Jordan, Curtis and Westbrook are all dealing with injuries. The healthy scratches for the game are Andrews, McGlynn and Hill. Banged up players that will go today include Brent Celek and Brodrick Bunkley. Newly activated wide receiver Jordan Norwood, a Penn State graduate, will make his NFL debut in place of DeSean Jackson although he won't see the field much.

The Falcons will be without 5 starting offensive players today as Ryan, Turner, Jenkins, Baker and Dahl all sit out with injuries. This should be another great opportunity for the Eagles as they will face backups Chris Redman at QB and Jerious Norwood at RB.

The Eagles need to keep pace in the NFC so today is almost a must-win. With how banged up Atlanta is, there is no excuse for our Birds not to win. GO EAGLES!
