Steelers RB Dwyer, Eagles LB Jordan inactive

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan will miss his second

straight game with a hamstring injury. The Eagles made the starting

linebacker one of seven inactive players before Sunday’s game

against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Eagles also made quarterback Trent Edwards, wide receiver

Riley Cooper, running back Chris Polk, defensive end Vinny Curry

and offensive linemen Steve Vallos and Nate Menkin inactive. Jamar

Chaney will start in Jordan’s place for the Eagles.

The Steelers made running back Jonathan Dwyer, the team’s

second-leading rusher, inactive. Dwyer is healthy, but the return

of starting running back Rashard Mendenhall from a torn ACL in his

right knee allowed Pittsburgh to deactivate Dwyer.

Quarterback Charlie Batch, linebackers Adrian Robinson and

Brandon Johnson, defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu, safety Robert

Golden and guard Kelvin Beachum were also inactive for

Pittsburgh.
