Colts Without Five Starters; Eagles' Jackson Will Play

As expected, Eagles starting cornerback Ellis Hobbs is inactive for this afternoon's game against the Colts. He will be replaced at the right cornerback spot by Dimitri Patterson, who will be making his first start of his five-year career.

Also inactive for the Eagles is running back Joique Bell, who will be replaced by recently acquired running back Jerome Harrison. This will be Harrison's first action since being traded to Philadelphia from the Cleveland Browns.

The other Eagles inactives are: QB Kafka (3rd QB), TE Harbor, WR Hall, G Wells, DE Te'o-Nesheim and T Dunlap.

Not listed was receiver DeSean Jackson, who will start this afternoon as head coach Andy Reid expected.

For the Colts, running backs Joseph Addai and Mike Hart are both down for the game, as Donald Brown will get the start and running back. Also inactive are defensive backs Jerraud Powers (replaced by Jacob Lacey) and linebacker Clint Session (replaced by Tyjuan Haglor).

Tight end Brody Eldridge will also miss today's game for the Colts, which means that third string tight end Gijon Robinson will start today. Defensive tackle Antonio Johnson is the final Colts starter who will miss today's game. In total, the Colts will be without the services of five starters this afternoon in Philadelphia.
