Maclin, Jackson Active For Eagles

Despite some uncertainty late in the week, wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are active and will start the home opener against the Ravens. The Eagles will enter the game with five wide receivers, as Mardy Gilyard will also suit up.

The Eagles are also welcoming back special teams ace Colt Anderson, who is returning to action just nine months after a severe knee injury. Sunday marks the Eagles debut of offensive lineman Demetress Bell, who will be the team's swing tackle for the game, as well as safety David Sims.

Cornerback Curtis Marsh will not play after sustaining a hamstring injury against Cleveland. The rest of the inactives are: quarterback Trent Edwards, running back Dion Lewis, defensive end Vinny Curry, offensive lineman Nate Menkin and wide receiver Riley Cooper.

The biggest new on the inactive front for the Ravens is starting outside linebacker Paul Kruger, who injured his back Monday night against the Bengals. Sergio Kindle is listed as his backup on the Ravens' depth chart.

Baltimore's other inactives are: wide receiver LaQuan Williams, cornerback Asa Jackson, tackle Jah Reid, tight end Billy Bajema, defensive end DeAngelo Tyson and defensive tackle Bryan Hall.
