I wouldn't rest anyone.

Our offense needs at least a half to build some rhythm with Foles, and our defensive starters should be able to play a half safely. Little niggles can heal during the bye week and a more serious injury is unlikely enough for me not to worry.

I'd leave Jones and Sturgis out. We need Jones to have a full recovery so that he can be 100% next year and Elliot is doing fine.

So would you be ok with starting Corey Graham or Beau Allen in a playoff game if a starter needlessly gets injured?

We could have lost Jenkins/McLeod or Cox/Jernigan for several weeks against the Raiders.

So yes, it's a "risk" I'm willing to take for a half. We have a bye week to rest players so let's try to keep the momentum going. Right now we've faltered against the Giants and Raiders so the team is not playing well enough for players to be benched in case something might happen.
