Falcons RB Turner, WR Jenkins inactive vs. Eagles

ATLANTA -- Running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Michael Jenkins are inactive for the Atlanta Falcons, and the Philadelphia Eagles are without wide receiver DeSean Jackson and running back Brian Westbrook for Sunday's game.

As expected, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is inactive with a turf toe injury after not practicing all week. Chris Redman is making his first start since 2007.

The Falcons also are without starting offensive guard Harvey Dahl (right ankle and Achilles' tendon) and offensive tackle Sam Baker (left elbow). Quinn Ojinnaka started at right guard, and Will Svitek replaced Baker at left tackle.

Turner and Jenkins are inactive with ankle injuries. Jackson and Westbrook are recovering from concussions. Jerious Norwood is starting for Turner. Brian Finneran is starting for Jenkins.
