Jammal Brown, Rocky McIntosh Inactive For Redskins; Eagles Sit LeSean McCoy
PHILADELPHIA – Jammal Brown, who made his return last week against Minnesota after missing two games because of a left groin injury, is inactive for the Washington Redskins’ final game of the season Sunday at Philadelphia.
Brown, the right tackle, played every snap during the loss to the Vikings. How much of the decision to keep Brown inactive because of his health and because of the Redskins’ desire to see Tyler Polumbus, Brown’s replacement, is uncertain.
Inside linebacker Rocky McIntosh is also among the Redskins’ healthy scratches. McIntosh lost his spot as a starter to Perry Riley after eight games and has played primarily on special teams since, making an occasional limited appearance on defense in goal-line situations.
Among the Redskins’ other inactives include receiver Aldrick Robinson, signed off the practice squad on Tuesday, as well as receiver David Anderson, defensive ends Kentwan Balmer and Doug Worthington and tight end Richard Quinn.
The Eagles announced LeSean McCoy, the NFC’s leading rusher, will be inactive, leaving him with 1,309 yards. McCoy has been dealing with an ankle injury in recent weeks, though head coach Andy Reid said Friday he was likely to play. Ronnie Brown will take over as the Eagles’ feature back against the Redskins.
Cornerback Asante Samuel is also out for the Eagles with a hamstring injury, while receiver Ron Johnson, linebacker Greg Lloyd, defensive tackles Mike Patterson and Cedric Thornton and guard Julian Vandervelde are also inactive.
