Inactives for tonight's game: Taylor up, Springs down

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The biggest news of course for the Redskins is that defensive end Jason Taylor will play in tonight's game against the Giants. Because of that, rookie defensive end Rob Jackson will be inactive, and I think Jim Zorn's willing to live with that.

The other inactives for the Redskins: Emergency QB Colt Brennan, WR Malcolm Kelly, CB Shawn Springs, S Kareem Moore, LB Alfred Fincher, G/T Chad Rinehart, TE Fred Davis and Jackson. With Springs down, Fred Smoot will start across from Carlos Rogers.

No real surprises for the Giants: K Lawrence Tynes (we knew that), RB Reuben Droughns (nice special teams guy), CB Terrell Thomas, CB Sam Madison (that means R.W. McQuarters is going), LB Jonathan Goff, T Adam Koets, DE Dave Tollefson (hello McDougle) and WR Mario Manningham.
