Inside linebacker Emmanuel Acho is active and will play. Acho has been dealing with a groin injury that has forced him to be limited in practice. Acho and Casey Matthews will likely split playing time at inside linebacker.
Starting quarterback Nick Foles is out due to a fractured collarbone. Foles' injury is expected to be re-evaluted shortly, but he could be out longer than first expected. Veteran signal caller Mark Sanchez will start in place of the injured Foles. Second-year quarterback Matt Barkley will serve as the backup to Sanchez. Veteran wide receiver Brad Smith is the team's emergency quarterback.
Andrew Gardner will start at right guard yet again in place of second-year offensive lineman Matt Tobin.
