Barnett and James Sit Out Monday Night Football Game


Nov 21, 2023

Philadelphia’s Eagles and Kansas City’s Chiefs have released their inactive lists for the upcoming games. The Eagles will be without tight end Dallas Goedert, who suffered a forearm fracture in a game against the Cowboys two weeks ago. The team hopes to have him back sooner than four games, which is why they did not place him on injured reserve. Meanwhile, defensive end Derek Barnett has been ruled out due to personal reasons, but it’s likely that he would have been a healthy scratch anyway since he has yet to record a sack after eight games this season. The Eagles’ other inactives include 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.

On the other hand, the Chiefs have made punt returner Richie James inactive for Monday Night Football despite activating him from injured reserve on Saturday. He has not played since Week 2 and entered Monday with a questionable designation. The team’s other inactives are interior offensive lineman Mike Caliendo, defensive end Malik Herring, defensive end BJ Thompson and defensive tackle Neil Farrell.
