Anyone have a source on this? I can't find anything.

Is Jordan a decent option at LB?

It's a Sunday AM Czarnecki thing. 50-50 that he's correct, and I wouldn't make any rash moves, but I thought it was worth throwing up there just in case.
On defense, the Eagles will start Will linebacker Akeem Jordan for Omar Gaither, believing he can stick with Ravens rookie RB Ray Rice.
Nothing of note in the local media that I can find either.

Is Patrick Willis ok today? I saw he sat out some practices because of a hip; now they're saying he has an illness but is probable.

 
All inactives are up (except PHI) -- nothing unexpected this morning.

Patrick Willis should be fine -- missed practice with an illness Friday, no injury.

I'll post some additional Eagles news if I can get it.

Good luck everybody.

 
Some additional information (maybe) from a local Eagles blog just before gametime...

Also interesting is the fact that though he is not listed in the changes to the starting lineup handed out by the Eagles, Akeem Jordan will start at weakside linebacker instead of Omar Gaither, apparently in an effort to do a better job against the Ravens' strong run game.
We'll see how this plays out. Can't tell if this is a nod to Czarnecki's note or additional corroboration. Teams usually list lineup changes on the inactive sheet and I've not seen a single source that confirms the lineup change from the team.Gaither is a risky start today, but all this may turn out to be unfounded speculation.

Good luck everybody. I'll post the late game inactives and news as we get it.

This fox link also mentions Gaither (and LJ Smith) being benched. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8835518...ound-the-ground

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Eagles RB Brian Westbrook will start and see how far he can go with his bad ankle. Correll Buckhalter will definitely play a lot because no one on Philly's staff knows how long Westbrook can last and how he will feel. Interestingly, though, they are the only two active Eagle running backs. Brent Celek will start for Eagles TE L.J. Smith. On defense, the Eagles will start Will linebacker Akeem Jordan for Omar Gaither, believing he can stick with Ravens rookie RB Ray Rice. Baltimore figures to share the carries between Rice and Le'Ron McClain. How successful the Ravens are depends on how effective the ground game is. If rookie QB Joe Flacco is set up in obvious passing situations behind a banged-up offensive line, he could be in trouble with the Eagles having 36 sacks. Adam Terry starts at LT and Willie Anderson at RT for Baltimore. Baltimore does have some good news: WR Derrick Mason will start despite a sore shoulder.

By the way, the Eagles benched Todd Heramens the other week, I think just disciplinary reasons ... he eventually came back in the game and played. There has been speculation based on some of Reid's comments that there could be changes, but I think most Eagle fans expected Gocong to be benched, not Gaither.

Little late, but an Eagles commenter from the blog link above confirmed that Merrill Reese noted the Jordan for Gaither change.

We'll see.

 
Calvin Lowry and Champ Bailey join Marlon McRee, Nate Webster and DJ Williams on the inactive list for Denver.

Roderick Rogers starts at safety.

All late game inactives up.

Houston at Cleveland

Houston has no significant inactives. Morlon Greenwood is back at practice, but has lost his starting spot to Xavier Adibi, who becomes an every-down WLB.

Sean Jones and Shaun Rogers are both active. Jones was limited on Friday and didn’t practice earlier in the week. He’ll be in a rotation at best today, with Mike Adams seeing a lot of playing time. Rogers was limited Thur/Fri.
Rogers put up a zero today.Anyone know if he was he on the field?

He was playing. He did block a field goal. Didn't realize he had no other stats.
