On this Bird Day, the Eagles are in Dallas to take on the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East ...
ARLINGTON, Tx. -- Linebacker Emmanuel Acho is active for today's Thanksgiving matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Acho was questionable with a groin injury suffered in Sunday's win over the Titans. It remains to be seen how many snaps that Acho will play as he and Casey Matthews have split the MIKE linebacker responsibilities following DeMeco Ryans' season-ending Achilles injury.
This position bears watching with the coverage of Dallas tight end Jason Witten, who is second on the team in both receptions (43) and yards receiving (461).
With Acho active, here are the players who will not suit up today for the Eagles: cornerback Roc Carmichael, quarterback Nick Foles, defensive end Taylor Hart, guard Dennis Kelly, wide receiver Jeff Maehl, center Julian Vandervelde and defensive back Jaylen Watkins.
