Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) has been designated as questionable for the Sunday game in Washington.
Kendricks logged full practices throughout the week, which would typically lead to a probable designation. He should be able to play, but between his 'questionable' tag and teammate DeMarco Murray's surprise absence last week, it would be unwise to assume Kendricks will suit up.
If he does play, Kendricks should be assured of a three-down role, as Kiko Alonso (knee) has been ruled out.
Kendricks came into this game with a hamstring injury, so he likely re-aggravated the injury. He's a big part of the team's rushing defense, so this injury potentially makes the sledding a bit easier for Alfred Morris and Matt Jones. He's expected to be replaced by Jordan Hicks at right inside linebacker.
Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell (shoulder) will likely be able to play in Sunday's game against the Saints, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Maxwell injured his quad during the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Redskins, allowing rookie Eric Rowe to work in an every-snap role. If Maxwell doesn't end up playing in Week 5, Rowe will likely get the start.
Three injured players have been placed on the inactive list by the Patriots for their season opener Thursday night against Pittsburgh. They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad).
