Westbrook, Gocong Highlight Eagles Inactives

Written By Bob Cunningham On Sunday, November 08, 2009

The Eagles 'D' could miss Gocong big time tonight.

We talked a few days ago about what would need to be done if Chris Gocong was unable to go tonight, and now we see that situation coming to fruition.

Chris Gocong is indeed out tonight, and joining him on the sidelines will be Brian Westbrook, Kevin Curtis, Mike McGlynn, P.J. Hill, Victor Abiamiri, Dimitri Patterson, and Max Jean-Gilles. It's a list that includes five potential starters, and could mean trouble for this Eagles team.

Moise Fokou will step in for Gocong, and LeSean McCoy will once again start for Westbrook who has really been a non-factor so far this season anyway.

All three quarterbacks are active, which to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense. There's no chance that Kevin Kolb goes in the game, outside of a McNabb injury, which would be covered by keeping him as the emergency third quarterback.

It will be interesting to see how the carries are spread out with only three active running backs in Leonard Weaver, Eldra Buckley, and McCoy. We will most likely see a whole lot of Weaver right away, and hopefully we get to see some of Buckley outside of garbage time.

The Eagles are hurting right now, but it should be exciting to see how deep this team really is.
