Philadelphia 76ers' Mike Scott appears to get into fight with Eagles fans

Adrian Peterson expected to be inactive, Redskins face long odds

They are planning to make him inactive against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, according to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

So less than 24 hours after pretty much saying Peterson is worthless to the team this season, Gruden will likely have to keep the veteran running back active for Washington's Week 2 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Like every other game from now until the season officially ends, Philadelphia left fans with plenty to discuss over the next few days before the main focus shifts to next Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Adrian Peterson expected to be inactive, Redskins face long odds

Asked why he chose to sit the four-time All Pro back against Philly, Redskins coach Jay Gruden cited the need for help on special teams. He says it's the first time in his 13-year National Football League career he's been inactive for a regular season game in which he's been healthy and able to play. The knee injury at least partially explains why Guice was limited to 18 yards on 10 carries.

Gruden received some flack after not dressing Peterson this past Sunday.

That's bad news for the Skins, especially after their Week 1 loss to the Eagles. By the 4th quarter, Jackson had 8 receptions and 154 yards. But after that, they couldn't score a single point where the Philadelphia Eagles led the score to 32-20. A sure thing was no longer sure, and Las Vegas sportsbooks won a nice chunk of change.
