Brandon Brooks active, will start for Eagles

Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks is not only active; he will start Sunday against Washington just a little more than seven months after suffering a ruptured Achilles in the NFC Divisional Round matchup against New Orleans.

Only three players are sidelined for the Eagles due to injury: linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee), tackle Jordan Mailata (back), and quarterback Nate Sudfeld (left wrist).

The other four inactive players for the Eagles are: defensive end Shareef Miller, guards Nate Herbig and Matt Pryor, and defensive end Daeshon Hall.

Washington will be without starting cornerback Fabian Moreau (foot), running back Adrian Peterson (healthy scratch), and tight end Jordan Reed (concussion).
