The Redskins have four quarterbacks on their roster, but only two of them will be suited up for Monday night's game against the Eagles at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

With Pat White and Rex Grossman on the inactive list, Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins will be the only active quarterbacks for Washington. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan obviously feels good about the health of both RG3 and Cousins. Griffin will be playing in his first game since tearing his ACL in January and Cousins suffered a minor foot injury in Washington's third preseason game.

Here are the inactive players for Monday night's game between Philadelphia and Washington.

Redskins inactives: Quarterback Pat White, quarterback Rex Grossman, running back Evan Royster, safety Brandon Meriweather, safety Jose Gumbs, offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus and nose tackle Chris Neild.

Eagles inactives: Quarterback Matt Barkley, cornerback Shaun Prater, offensive tackle Matt Tobin, offensive tackle Dennis Kelly, defensive end Vinny Curry and tight end Emil Igwenagu.
