As expected, Kevin Curtis and Brian Westbrook were in the starting lineup for Sunday's game with the Falcons. Curtis started alongside rookie DeSean Jackson, who started in place of an injured Reggie Brown. Atlanta, meanwhile, was without rookie left tackle Sam Baker, who was sidelined with a hip injury.
Brown missed his third game of the season and second straight due to a groin injury. He was limited in practice this week. Up front, Max Jean-Gilles started in place of Pro Bowl guard Shawn Andrews. Fullback Kyle Eckel, signed earlier this week, was also inactive for the game. Linebacker Tracy White, signed during the bye week, made his Eagles' debut.
Philadelphia's other inactives included linebacker Joe Mays, defensive end Bryan Smith, offensive guards Mike McGlynn and tight end Matt Schobel. A.J. Feeley was the third quarterback.
For the Falcons, Baker was replaced by Todd Weiner. Defensively, Domonique Foxworth started at left cornerback in place of rookie Brent Grimes, who was limited in practice this week due to a knee injury. Grimes, however, was active for the game.
Atlanta's other inactives included receiver Laurent Robinson, safety Thomas DeCoud, cornerback David Irons, linebacker Tony Gilbert, center Alex Stepanovich and end Simon Fraser. D.J. Shockley was designated as the Falcons' third quarterback.
