Steelers RB Dwyer, Eagles LB Jordan inactive
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan will miss his second

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.

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
