Philadelphia and Kansas City have no surprises on their inactive lists for their upcoming games. The Eagles will be without tight end Dallas Goedert, who fractured his forearm in a game against the Cowboys two weeks ago. The Eagles hope Goedert returns sooner than four games, which is why they did not place him on injured reserve. Defensive end Derek Barnett was ruled out for personal reasons Sunday, but the Eagles likely would have made him a healthy scratch anyway since he has no sacks in eight games this season.
The Chiefs activated punt returner Richie James back to the 53-player roster from injured reserve Saturday, but made him inactive for Monday Night Football despite having a questionable designation. He has not played since Week 2. The Chiefs’ other inactives are interior offensive lineman Mike Caliendo, defensive end Malik Herring, defensive end BJ Thompson and defensive tackle Neil Farrell.
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.
