PHILADELPHIA – Joshua Morgan, who led the Washington Redskins with 48 receptions last season but has seen his playing time steadily decrease this year, will be inactive for the game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Morgan, who has 11 catches for 124 yards this season, has gradually been phased out of the offense as wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has taken over as the top Z receiver.

Undrafted rookie wide receiver Nick Williams, signed off the practice squad on Tuesday, will return punts in Morgan’s place. Williams, whose 2,045 kickoff return yards are a record at UConn, grew up 45 minutes from Philadelphia in East Windsor, N.J.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen, who aggravated his injured right knee in practice on Thursday, is active and will play. Bowen worked out for approximately 15 minutes before the game under the supervision of head athletic trainer Larry Hess, physican Christopher Annunziata and defensive line coach Jacob Burney.

Bowen originally tore the PCL in the knee in the Redskins’ victory over the Chicago Bears on Oct. 20.

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, listed on the injury report as questionable with soreness in his left foot, is active and will play. Hankerson (unspecified hamstring injury) and tight end Logan Paulsen (sprained MCL in left knee) are also active, as is running back Evan Royster (unspecified back injury).

Free safety Jose Gumbs (sprained left ankle) is inactive for the third consecutive game. Also inactive for the Redskins are tight end Fred Davis, quarterback Rex Grossman, outside linebacker Brandon Jenkins, left guard Josh LeRibeus and nose tackle Chris Neild.

For the Eagles, starting inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks (unspecified knee injury) is inactive and will not play, as are cornerback Bradley Fletcher (strained pectoral), inside linebacker Jake Knott (strained hamstring), wide receiver Damaris Johnson and right tackle Dennis Kelly. Quarterback Michael Vick (strained left hamstring) and free safety Earl Wolff (unspecified knee injury) were ruled out earlier in the week.
