The Eagles and Chiefs both have some inactive players on their rosters for upcoming games. Philadelphia won’t have tight end Dallas Goedert again after he fractured his forearm two weeks ago against the Cowboys. Although they hope he returns sooner than four games, they didn’t place him on injured reserve. Defensive end Derek Barnett was ruled out for personal reasons, but the Eagles likely would have made him a healthy scratch anyway since he has no sacks in eight games this season. Their other inactives are offensive guard Sua Opeta, running back Rashaad Penny, defensive tackle Moro Ojomo and quarterback Tanner McKee, who will serve as the emergency third-string quarterback.
On the other hand, the Chiefs made punt returner Richie James inactive for Monday Night Football despite activating him back to the 53-player roster from injured reserve Saturday. He hasn’t played since Week 2 and entered Monday with a questionable designation. The Chiefs’ other inactives include interior offensive lineman Mike Caliendo, defensive end Malik Herring, defensive end BJ Thompson and defensive tackle Neil Farrell.
