Watkins, Hunt Inactive Vs. Cowboys

Right guard Danny Watkins will miss his third straight game as he recovers from an ankle injury. Once again, rookie Dennis Kelly will start in his place. Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard (hamstring) and running back Chris Polk (toe) will also miss Sunday's game. All three players were ruled out earlier in the week.

After being added to the 53-man roster earlier in the week, offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde is active for Sunday's game. He and center Matt Tenant will be the reserve linemen for the game. Defensive end Phillip Hunt is inactive for the first time this season.

The rest of the Eagles' inactives are: defensive end Vinny Curry, offensive lineman Nate Menkin and quarterback Trent Edwards.

The Cowboys will be without some key starters against the Eagles. Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is out with a foot injury, as are center Phil Costa (ankle) and middle linebacker Dan Connor (neck). Starting in place of Connor will be former Eagle Ernie Sims.

Rounding out the Cowboys inactives are: cornerback Mike Jenkins, safety Matt Johnson, guard David Arkin and defensive tackle Sean Lissemore.
