Eagles activate Tapp, Parker with Cole out

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- With star defensive end Trent Cole inactive Sunday due to a calf injury, the Eagles are happy to welcome back defensive ends Darryl Tapp, who missed the previous two games with a torn pectoral muscle, and Juqua Parker, who sprained his ankle in Week 2 and hasn't played since. Tapp starts in place of Cole.

The Eagles also announced Mike Kafka as one of their inactives, which leaves Vince Young as the only active quarterback besides starter Michael Vick. With starting left tackle Jason Peters out with a hamstring injury, King Dunlap will start at left tackle. First-round draft pick Danny Watkins finally gets his first NFL start at right guard in place of Kyle DeVan, who is inactive. And tackle Winston Justice is active for the first time this season and will help with depth on the offensive line.

I'll be here at Ralph Wilson Stadium all afternoon, and you can join in our live chat of the game here starting at 1 pm ET.
