Eagles vs. Redskins inactives, NFL Week 1: Brandon Meriweather inactive for Washington

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins will be without one starter when they take on the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

A groin injury will keep Brandon Meriweather out of the Washington Redskins' season opener. The safety was ruled inactive prior to the kickoff of Monday night's game between the Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Meriweather missed most of training camp and the preseason while he worked his way back from a knee injury. He made his debut in Washington's final preseason game, but suffered a groin injury upon his return to the field.

Meriweather's participation in practice was limited this week and he was listed as questionable heading into Monday's game. With Meriweather inactive, the Redskins will start Reed Doughty at strong safety.

The Eagles won't be missing any starters due to injury considering defensive lineman Vinny Curry the most notable name on the inactive list. Curry is a healthy scratch and Jeff McLane of Philly.com noted Curry spent most of the preseason working with the third-team defense. The former second-round pick appeared in six games for the Eagles last season.

Philadelphia Eagles:

Defensive end Vinny Curry, offensive lineman Matt Tobin, cornerback Shaun Prater, offensive lineman Dennis Kelly, quarterback Matt Barkley, tight end Emil Igwenagu

Washington Redskins:

Quarterback Pat White, quarterback Rex Grossman, running back Evan Royster, safety Brandon Meriweather, safety Jose Gumbs, defensive tackle Chris Neild, guard Josh LeRibeus
