PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Eagles are missing starting cornerback Byron Maxwell and starting defensive tackle Bennie Logan in their must-win game against the Washington Redskins.
Maxwell has a shoulder injury and Logan has knee and calf injuries. E.J. Biggers starts for Maxwell, and Beau Allen takes Logan's spot.
Special-teams gunner Seyi Ajirotutu also is inactive for Philadelphia. Rookie running back Matt Jones is among Washington's inactives. Jones has a hip injury.

Here's the list of inactives:
Redskins: QB Robert Griffin III, RB Matt Jones, LB Perry Riley Jr., DE Frank Kearse, G Arie Kouandjio, TE Marcel Jensen, TE Je'Ron Hamm.
