The Eagles ruled QB Vince Young and rookie OG Danny Watkins inactive for their Week One game against the Rams, while WR Steve Smith will be active.
Young suffered a hamstring injury in the team's preseason finale. Watkins, the team's first-round pick, was originally slated to start.
The Eagles signed Smith in free agency, and some thought he would be begin the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list.
Mike Kafka will be Michael Vick's backup quarterback.
