PHILADELPHIA — Washington receiver DeSean Jackson is active for the Redskins' game at his former team, the Eagles.

Jackson had been listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a left shoulder sprain sustained in last week's win over Jacksonville. Jackson was cut in the offseason by Philadelphia despite being one of the NFL's top receivers and kick returners during six seasons with the team.

Out Sunday for Washington are two other targets for backup quarterback Kirk Cousins: WR Santana Moss and TE Jordan Reed. Starting QB Robert Griffin III is sidelined with a knee injury.

CB Tracy Porter, LB Akeem Jordan, DE Kedric Golston and OT Morgan Moses also will sit out.

For Philadelphia, starting linebacker Mychal Kendrick is inactive (calf). The Eagles also are without S Earl Wolff, DE Taylor Hart, OTs Kevin Graf and Matt Tobin, QB Matt Barkley and WR Josh Huff.
