The Eagles' run defense will take a hit without Bennie Logan manning the middle.

After a few weeks in which the Eagles didn't have any injuries that held players out of games, the Birds will be missing a pair of key defenders tonight against the Redskins.

Here is the full list of Eagles and Redskins inactives:


Eagles inactives:

• CB Byron Maxwell: The Eagles will likely be without Maxwell, who did not practice at all this week with a shoulder injury. While Maxwell has been disappointing this season, the Eagles are unquestionably better with him than without him. Maxwell's likely absence will have a trickle-down effect on the rest of the secondary. It will require the Eagles to have extra defensive backs on the field against the Redskins' "11 personnel" (3 WRs, 1 TE), which means significant minutes for some combination of the following guys -- EJ Biggers, Jaylen Watkins, Chris Maragos, and Ed Reynolds.

• NT Bennie Logan (calf): The Eagles' awfulness against the run of late has been a team effort, and obviously, the Eagles have to tackle far better than they have recently. Logan did not practice at all this week with a calf injury, and the Eagles will be without one of their best run defenders.

The remaining Eagles inactives are WR Seyi Ajirotutu, QB Thad Lewis, OL Tanner Hawkinson, OL Barrett Jones, and LB Steven Means.


The Redskins' inactives are QB Robert Griffin III, LB Perry Riley, RB Matt Jones, DE Frank Kearse, OG Arie Kouandjio, TE Marcel Jensen, and TE Je'Ron Hamm.
