Derek Barnett and Richie James are not playing in Monday Night Football


Nov 21, 2023

The Eagles and Chiefs have finalized their inactive lists and there are no surprises. Philadelphia will be without tight end Dallas Goedert who fractured his forearm two weeks ago. The Eagles are hoping for Goedert’s return before four games, so they did not place him on injured reserve. Additionally, defensive end Derek Barnett has been ruled out for personal reasons, but the Eagles would likely have made him a healthy scratch regardless due to his lack of sacks this season. The other inactives for the Eagles are 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.

The Chiefs have made punt returner Richie James inactive for Monday Night Football, despite activating him back to the 53-player roster from injured reserve. He has not played since Week 2 and entered Monday with a questionable designation. The Chiefs’ other inactives are interior offensive lineman Mike Caliendo, defensive end Malik Herring, defensive end BJ Thompson, and defensive tackle Neil Farrell.
