2. Albert Okwuegbunam, TE

Injury-wise, the Philadelphia Eagles are looking great going into Sunday's game against the Commanders. For this team to be getting to full strength is rather scary on paper. When you look back at previous weeks of players who have been inactive, Albert Okwuegbunam has to be one of the most obvious choices, right?

Okwuegbunam was acquired at roster cuts in a trade with the Denver Broncos. So far, it hasn't really worked out for him in Philadelphia. Ironically, the Broncos could really use him right now with the way Greg Dulcich has continued to struggle with hamstring injuries there in Denver.

At any rate, don't expect Okwuegbunam to suit up for this game, either.

3. Tanner McKee, QB

Quarterback Tanner McKee has been a weekly inactive for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and understandably so. The Philadelphia Eagles aren't using a gameday roster spot on a third quarterback at this point with both Jalen Hurts and Marcus Mariota available and when the NFL has a rule where you can basically have them available for free.

McKee will be available in case of any sort of situation where Jalen Hurts and Marcus Mariota suffer injury. If that is the case, however, he would only be able to be utilized in case of emergency. But don't expect him to be "technically" activated at this point. He will continue to be listed as a 3rd QB and will be on the inactive list.
