Shawn Andrews will play against the Eagles tonight and likely be the starting left tackle.

Although Tom Coughlin threw out the idea that Andrews could be active and not start, it seems more likely that if he is well enough to make the 45-man gameday roster that he’s well enough to start.

Andrews was out jogging on the field earlier listening to his iPad. Yes, that's right, his iPad, not his iPod. He had headphones on and was toting the tablet under his arm like a school book.

Also active are Kevin Boss and Corey Webster, who missed practice time with injuries. So is Jake Ballard, who was added to the 53 yesterday.

Gerris Wilkinson and Darius Reynaud, who practiced all week, are among the inactives. The rest of that list includes the four players who did not make the trip – Steve Smith, Shaun O’Hara, Madison Hedgecock and David Diehl – plus Alex Hall and Linval Joseph.
