Eagles/Niners Inactives: Kevin Curtis is back

The Eagles and Niners announced their inactive players for their Week 15 game:

Eagles: OL Stacy Andrews, QB Kevin Kolb, DT Trevor Laws, WR Jeremy Maclin, OL Mike McGlynn, CB Geoffrey Pope, TE Martin Rucker, RB Brian Westbrook

Niners: DT Baraka Atkins, LB Diyral Briggs, WR Isaac Bruce, CB Nate Clements, QB Nate Davis, OT Chris Patrick, CB Keith Smith, C Cody Wallace

The biggest news for the Eagles is that WR Kevin Curtis is returning to the field for the first time since Week 2. I wouldn't expect him to do too much but it's nice to see their former top receiver back in action. Both Westbrook and Maclin are still nursing injuries so that is why they are out again. The remaining players are all healthy scratches.

With Dallas inexplicably winning yesterday, this game becomes huge for the Eagles. To stay alone atop the NFC East, they must win. They can also clinch a playoff spot with a win, so the Eagles should be plenty motivated. GO BIRDS!
