Associated Press 2hrs ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Quarterback Alex Smith and wide receiver Terry McLaurin are active for Washington against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.

Washington (6-9) needs a victory or tie to clinch the NFC East title. Smith missed the past two games with a calf strain. McLaurin didn’t play last week because of an ankle injury.

Quarterback Carson Wentz and wideout Alshon Jeffery are healthy inactives for the Eagles (4-10-1). Wentz was benched for Jalen Hurts last month. Nate Sudfeld will serve as the backup.

Also inactive for Philadelphia are Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, running back Miles Sanders, tight end Dallas Goedert, defensive end Derek Barnett, tackle Jordan Mailata, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, tight end Richard Rodgers and cornerback Michael Jacquet.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
