Clinton Portis inactive vs. Eagles
Allen, a rookie second-round draft pick, had started every game this season. Another rookie, Kurt Coleman, was given the start in Allen's place. Starting cornerback Ellis Hobbs missed a second consecutive game with a hip flexor injury, and was replaced in the lineup by Dmitri Patterson.
Redskins running back Clinton Portis was inactive with a lingering left groin injury. It's the fifth straight game Portis has missed.
