Kiko Alonso, Sam Bradford active for Eagles vs. Packers preseason game [UPDATE]

The Eagles will only be missing a few players against the Packers.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles announced their game day inactives in advance of their game against the Green Bay Packers.


The following players are officially out and will not play:

TE Zach Ertz

OLB Marcus Smith

ILB Emmanuel Acho

CB JaCorey Shepherd

None of these come as a surprise. Ertz is out for the entire preseason after having surgery on a core muscle injury. He's expected back in time for the regular season. Smith suffered a hamstring strain and might be ready for the regular season as well.

Acho was reportedly waived/injured a few days ago, but the team hasn't officially confirmed the move yet.

Shepherd is expected to be placed on injured reserve this week.


Everyone else is active, including these noteworthy players:

Sam Bradford is ACTIVE and will start at quarterback. It's unclear how many snaps Bradford will play.

Major Eagles offseason acquisition Kiko Alonso is active. So is fellow inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans.

Andrew Gardner is expected to start at right guard once again.

Josh Huff missed a few days of practice while mourning the loss of his god brother.

UPDATE: Huff isn't warming up with the wide receivers after all.

UPDATE #2: It looks like Alonso might not play after all.
