PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Eagles will try to start the long road back from a 1-4 start on Sunday as they visit the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins are 3-1 and coming off their bye week. They currently sit all alone in first place in NFC East.
The Eagles practiced again on Friday, and afterward head coach Andy Reid said his squad is looking forward to this divisional match-up.
“Big game, great atmosphere, NFC East rivals, and we look forward to the challenge of going down there and playing a good football team,” Reid told reporters.
On the injury front, defensive end Trent Cole and tackles Jason Peters and King Dunlap did not practice on Friday. Cole (calf) and Peters (hamstring) have both been ruled out for the Redskins game. Dunlap is being called “questionable” because of back spasms.
The Eagles-Redskins kickoff is at 1:00pm on Sunday.
