Eagles offensive lineman Allen Barbre exited in the first half of Thursday's game against the New York Giants with a hamstring injury and did not return. Barbre's right hamstring has been a problem at times throughout the season. He was questionable for Thursday's game but was able to start at left guard.
Barbre missed two games in November because of the injured hamstring, and he also missed Sunday's loss to Baltimore. He returned to practice this week at left guard, where he hadn't played since Nov. 20.
Stefen Wisniewski replaced Barbre.
Matthews suits up
Wide receiver Jordan Matthews played Thursday with a lingering ankle injury. He was questionable for the game.
The inactive players were wide receiver Paul Turner, cornerback Dwayne Gratz, defensive end Steven Means, guard Josh Andrews, offensive lineman Dillon Gordon, offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and defensive tackle Taylor Hart.
Vaitai missed his fifth consecutive game. He was questionable with a knee injury. Isaac Seumalo was questionable with a high ankle sprain, but he played Thursday. He was a backup lineman and was used as an extra blocker.
Darren Sproles returned after missing Sunday's game with a concussion. Lane Johnson played right tackle for the first time since Week 5, and Brandon Brooks started after missing the last two home games because of an illness related to anxiety.
Malcolm Jenkins' interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter was his second of the season, fourth with the Eagles, and sixth of his career. He has the most touchdowns on interception returns of any active safety in the NFL. . . . Carson Wentz broke franchise record at the end of the second quarter by completing his 347th pass. The record had been held by Sam Bradford, who had 346 completions last season.
