Injuries: Who's In, Who's Out?

Though officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report, both Jason Peters and Todd Herremans are expected to start Monday night against the Redskins.

Herremans will see his first action of the season as he steps in at the left guard spot, alongside Peters at left tackle. Nick Cole, who filled in for Herremans, will move to the right side and start at right guard alongside right tackle Winston Justice.

Offensive guard Max Jean-Gilles, who has been part of the rotation at right guard, was limited Saturday due to shoulder inflammation. He is listed as questionable for the game.

"(It's) something he had when we were going into the bye week," head coach Andy Reid said.

Defensive lineman Darren Howard was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable.

Four Eagles are out for the game, including defensive end Victor Abiamiri, receiver Kevin Curtis, linebacker Omar Gaither and cornerback/special teamer Dimitri Patterson.

As for the Redskins, running back Clinton Portis and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth were limited in Saturday's workout after missing the previous two days with ankle injuries. Both players are officially listed as questionable for Monday night's game.

Head coach Jim Zorn said Haynesworth will be a game-time decision. Portis, said Zorn, will play.

Reid says handling Haynesworth, if he does play, will be a challenge for Philadelphia's offensive line.

"If he's not the best, he is certainly one of the best defensive tackles in the National Football League," Reid said. "He is very, very big and very strong, and he can move around very well. He is a challenge."
