Tapp, Laws scratched for Jets
The Eagles deactivated injured defensive linemen Darryl Tapp and Trevor Laws.
Also scratched - Brandon Hughes, Julian Vandervelde, Winston Justice, Greg Lloyd and Cedric Thornton.
Obviously the Eagles felt it would be more productive to go with three defensive tackles instead of letting Thornton debut. That despite a run-first Jets attack.
