WR Jackson, CB Samuel Active

For the Eagles' troika of starters listed as questionable, two out of three ain't bad. The Pro Bowl tandem of wide receiver DeSean Jackson and cornerback Asante Samuel are both active. It will be Samuel's first game since the last time the Eagles and Giants met four week ago. On the minus side, Winston Justice is inactive with a hyperextended knee. King Dunlap will start in his place at right tackle.

Also among the inactives is newly acquired defensive end Derrick Burgess. The rest of the inactives: linebacker Stewart Bradley, linebacker Keenan Clayton, tight end Garrett Mills, offensive lineman Austin Howard, cornerback Brandon Hughes and third quarterback Mike Kafka.

Rookie Jamar Chaney will start at middle linebacker in place of Bradley.

UPDATE: Shaun O'Hara returns to the Giants starting lineup at center this afternoon after an extended absence due to a foot injury, and Rich Seubert will start at left guard in place of Kevin Boothe. The Giants inactives are: WR Reynaud, DB Coe, TE Ballard, G Petrus, OL Meredith, WR Thomas, DE Hall, and DT Joseph
