Eagles down to 2 healthy tackles at Redskins

Sunday - 10/16/2011, 12:16pm  ET

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - King Dunlap's back spams have left the Philadelphia Eagles with only two healthy offensive tackles _ including Winston Justice, who gets the start despite not having played a snap on the line this season.

Starting left tackle Jason Peters is out for Sunday's game at the Washington Redskins with a hamstring injury, so right tackle Todd Herremans shifts over. Peters' usual backup is Dunlap, but because he's out, too, Justice will play at right tackle. He had offseason knee surgery and only has played special teams since.

The Eagles also are without safety Jarrad Page, who has a stinger.

Washington's inactives include cornerback Phillip Buchanon, who has a neck injury, and receiver Anthony Armstrong, out with a bad hamstring.
