Eagles S Avonte Maddox, DT Michael Bennett active vs Rams

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Philadelphia rookie safety Avonte Maddox and veteran defensive tackle Michael Bennett are active for the Eagles’ visit to the Los Angeles Rams.

Although quarterback Carson Wentz was inactive as expected Sunday night, the Eagles (6-7) also got good injury news before they faced the NFC West champion Rams (11-2).

Maddox injured his knee and ankle against New Orleans on Nov. 18, and he hadn’t played in Philadelphia’s past three games.

Bennett was listed as questionable due to a foot injury, but he practiced Friday.

Wentz is out indefinitely with a back injury. Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles started against his former team.

The Rams had no surprise additions to their small injury list.
