Philadelphia vs. Washington inactives: CB Ronald Darby active for the Eagles

The Eagles will have cornerback Ronald Darby available for today's crucial NFC East showdown in Washington. Darby, who was added to the injury report on Friday due to a hip flexor ailment, was listed as questionable.

Safety Rodney McLeod is the sixth captain for today's game. McLeod is from nearby Hyattsville, Maryland.

Here is a look at the seven players who are inactive for today's game:

WR Nelson Agholor: The wide receiver was declared out on Saturday due to a knee injury. He will miss his third game in four weeks. Greg Ward takes over in the slot for Agholor. Robert Davis was promoted from the practice squad this week and will make his Eagles debut against the team that drafted him in 2017. The Eagles will feature more 12 personnel, with two tight ends on the field at the same time.

DE Derek Barnett: Barnett suffered an ankle injury December 1 in Miami and will miss his second straight game. Last Monday night, Vinny Curry posted two sacks and Josh Sweat played a season-high 50 percent of the defensive snaps against the Giants.

RB Jordan Howard: Howard suffered his shoulder injury November 3 in the win over the Chicago Bears. Sunday will mark his fifth straight game out of action. Miles Sanders will start and Boston Scott is coming off a breakthrough performance against the Giants in which he gained 128 yards from scrimmage and scored a rushing touchdown.

T Lane Johnson: The All-Pro tackle is out with an ankle injury that he incurred in Monday night's win over the Giants. Halapoulivaati Vaitai starts at right tackle. Matt Pryor is active as an additional reserve lineman. 

DE Shareef Miller: The rookie has not been active since he made his NFL debut in the October 27 win over Buffalo.

G Sua Opeta: The rookie free agent was promoted to the active roster on December 3, but has not yet been active for a regular-season game. Backup guard and center Nate Herbig is active for the first time in his career.

QB Nate Sudfeld: The Eagles will go with two actives quarterbacks in Carson Wentz and Josh McCown.

Take a look at what the Birds are wearing for their trip to D.C.

Washington is without its top offensive lineman, cover corner, and slot receiver. And that's not including the loss of edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan, who was placed on Injured Reserve this week.

Two-time Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Scherff was questionable with elbow and shoulder injuries. He is out.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar is out with a hamstring injury, making life a little easier for an Eagles offense that is without its top options at wide receiver. He was questionable.

Slot wide receiver Trey Quinn was declared out on Friday with a concussion. 

Three other members of Washington's secondary were questionable: cornerback Fabian Moreau (hamstring), cornerback Josh Norman (illness), and safety Montae Nicholson (ankle). They are all active.
