Kickoff approaches. Teams are releasing their final inactives reports ahead of another week of NFL action (hopefully, it’s as thrilling as what we saw last week). The Philadelphia Eagles have decided on Landon Dickerson‘s status.

He’s a go for the 1 p.m. EST game versus the Washington Commanders. Philly, after elevating Britain Covey from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday, announced the names of five inactives ahead of their Week 3 clash, the first of two annual meetings with their long-time rivals from our great nation’s capital.

Here’s the Eagles’ status report ahead of their tilt with the Commanders. Landon Dickerson is expected to start at left guard.

The Eagles have named five of their players as healthy scratches ahead of Week 2’s game: quarterback Ian Book, safety Reed Blakenship, running back Trey Sermon, defensive end Janarius Robinson, and offensive lineman Josh Sills.

Dickerson, as you know, sat out of the Eagles’ final practice session of the week on Friday with a foot injury. This after he participated in the previous sessions despite being labeled as ‘limited’ on Thursday so that he might receive rest.

Grant Calcaterra was another of the noticeable absences from Philadelphia’s inactives list. He was scratched in each of the Eagles’ first two games, with them electing instead to elevate Noah Togiai from the practice squad. This is the sixth-rounders first game as a member of the Birds.

Washington has announced their list of inactives as well: quarterback Sam Howell, cornerback William Jackson, guard Chris Paul, tight end Cole Turner, defensive tackle Daniel Wise, defensive end Casey Toohill ( a former Eagle), and defensive end James Smith-Williams.
