Jordan Mailata Active for First Time vs Panthers
The Eagles are still a little banged up as they play their seventh game of the regular season Sunday with a couple of key players out for the game against Carolina.
Ahead of kickoff against the Panthers, the Eagles are missing four key players, cornerback Sidney Jones, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, running back Darren Sproles, and safety Corey Graham.
Also inactive today are offensive lineman Matt Pryor and linebackers Nathan Gerry and D.J. Alexander.
Active for the first time today is rookie tackle Jordan Mailata.
With both Jason Peters and Lane Johnson dealing with injuries, the Eagles elected to dress the former Australian rugby star. Also with Ngata out today, expect to see more of Treyvon Hester at defensive tackle.
The Panthers' inactives include RB Cameron Artis-Payne, OG Brendan Mahon, OG Amini Silatolu, DE Marquis Haynes, DE Bryan Cox, LB Andre Smith, and CB Corn Elder.
Kickoff between the Eagles and Panthers comes at 1p.m. from Lincoln Finical Field and can be heard on 97.3 ESPN.
