Eagles vs. Bills: Week 5 inactives

The Eagles and the Bills announced their inactive players for their Week 5 matchup:

Eagles: DE Trent Cole, G Kyle DeVan, S Jaiquawn Jarrett, QB Mike Kafka, CB Curtis Marsh, T Jason Peters, OL Julian Vandervelde

Bills: T Demetrius Bell, G Colin Brown, LB Chris Kelsay, NT Torell Troup, CB Terrence Wheatley, LB Chris White, CB Aaron Williams

Rookie Danny Watkins is active and will make his first NFL start.  Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp are back and will look to pick up the Eagles pass rush with Trent Cole out.  With Jason Peters out, King Dunlap will start at left tackle.  With Mike Kafka benched, Vince Young is the backup quarterback.

This is a must-win game for the Eagles against a decent Bills team.  They can't go 1-4 and expect to make a late charge into the playoffs.  Given what we've seen the last few weeks, its hard to have much faith in the Birds.
