Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is not active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Earlier in the week, Vick assured the press that he "would not play". It looks like he meant what he said. Nick Foles officially gets the start at QB.

Vick was active last week despite not taking the field against the Buccaneers. Vick's activation was in preparation for an emergency situation. Today, Eagles tight end James Casey will be the third string quarterback if an emergency arises. Matt Barkley is active for the second week this season and  will be the backup to Nick Foles.

Earl Wolff will start in place of injured safety Patrick Chung. Chris Polk is injured, and recently promoted practice squad running back Matthew Tucker will take his spot as the third RB. Recently added WR B.J. Cunningham is active.

For Dallas, the big inactives are starting DE DeMarcus Ware and RB DeMarco Murray.

Here is the full list of Eagles inactives:

Michael Vick - Hamstring injury.

Shaun Prater - Depth CB. Roc Carmichael is active instead of him.

Matt Tobin - Depth OL.

Dennis Kelly - Depth OL.

Damion Square - Depth DL.

Chris Polk - Shoulder injury.

Patrick Chung - Shoulder injury.

Cowboys inactives:

DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray, Davonte Holloman, David Arkin, Darrion Weems, Lance Dunbar.
