DeSean Jackson was described as day to day all week, and officially listed as questionable for today's game with a Grade 1 AC joint sprain. Gruden described it as a pain tolerance issue earlier in the week, and acknowledged that Jackson was intent on playing. During Friday's practice, Jackson was limited and catching some passes, but it's not known how effective he will be today. Andre Roberts is expected to take any snaps that Jackson misses today, with Ryan Grant stepping up to pick up the slack. Santana Moss is once again inactive, and has not played in a game this season.
Center Kory Lichtensteiger is active today. There were questions early today about his availability due to a groin injury that limited him in practice the last few days of practice. The Redskins backup center is RG Chris Chester, which would mean either rookie Spencer Long or 3rd year guard Josh LeRibeus would have to fill in.
DE Kedric Golston was warming up on the field this morning, but he has not been able to practice all week and he will be out today. This leaves 5 active defensive linemen for the second game in a row. The depth and rotation will be tested by the Eagles fast paced offense today.

The biggest name on the Eagles inactive list is starting LB Mychal Kendricks. This will force the Eagles to start either Emmanuel Acho or Casey Matthews today which should create some favorable matchups for the Redskins offense.
