Philadelphia has ruled out tight end Dallas Goedert for at least four games after he fractured his forearm in a game against the Cowboys two weeks ago. The Eagles hope to have him back sooner, but they did not place him on injured reserve. Meanwhile, the Chiefs made punt returner Richie James inactive for Monday Night Football despite activating him back to the 53-player roster from injured reserve Saturday. James has not played since Week 2 and entered Monday with a questionable designation.
The Eagles’ other inactives are offensive guard Sua Opeta, running back Rashaad Penny, defensive tackle Moro Ojomo and quarterback Tanner McKee, who will serve as the emergency, third-string quarterback. On the other hand, the Chiefs’ other inactives are interior offensive lineman Mike Caliendo, defensive end Malik Herring, defensive end BJ Thompson and defensive tackle Neil Farrell.
Defensive end Derek Barnett was ruled out for personal reasons Sunday by the Eagles. However, it is likely that they would have made him a healthy scratch anyway since he has no sacks in eight games this season. The Eagles have been struggling with injuries this season and hope to get their players back soon so they can improve their performance on the field.
