Peters To Start; Fletcher, Kendricks Inactive

One of the four Eagles listed as questionable heading into today's game will start for the Eagles Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Left tackle Jason Peters, who has been recovering from quadriceps and pectoral injuries, will play and start at left tackle as the Eagles look to protect Nick Foles from the likes of Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo.

Meanwhile, quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) are all inactive for the Eagles. Fletcher will be replaced at cornerback by Roc Carmichael, who started the first game of his NFL career in last week's win over the Green Bay Packers. Najee Goode will replace Kendricks at linebacker after playing well in replacing Kendricks against the Packers.

Brad Smith, the veteran special teamer signed earlier this week, is active and will make his 2013 debut.

Patrick Chung will start at safety opposite Nate Allen with rookie Earl Wolff out with a knee injury.

Linebacker Jake Knott, wide receiver Damaris Johnson, and tackle Dennis Kelly are the other inactive players for the Eagles.

WR Joshua Morgan
