Inactives: Key Starters Missing For Both Teams

In addition to quarterback Matt Ryan, the Falcons were without four other offensive starters for Sunday's NFC showdown with the Eagles.

Missing for Atlanta were running back Michael Turner, receiver Michael Jenkins, left tackle Sam Baker and right guard Harvey Dahl. Brian Finneran started in place of Jenkins, while Jerious Norwood started in place of Turner. Up front, Will Svitek started at left tackle and Quinn Ojinnaka started in place of Dahl. Of course, Chris Redman started at quarterback in place of Ryan.

As expected, the Eagles were without receivers DeSean Jackson and Kevin Curtis, running back Brian Westbrook and linebacker Akeem Jordan. Also inactive were running back P.J. Hill and offensive linemen Mike McGlynn and Stacy Andrews. Kevin Kolb was the third quarterback.

Atlanta's other inactives included safety Charlie Peprah, linebacker Spencer Adkins and defensive tackle Trey Lewis.
