Starting left guard Stefen Wisniewski is officially OUT. Wis suffered an ankle injury last Sunday and was limited in practice this week. He was ruled questionable heading into today’s game. We could see both Chance Warmack and Isaac Seumalo get playing time in his absence. That’s not great news for Philly.
Zach Ertz is back after missing last week’s game due to a lingering concussion. That’s good news.
Joe Walker is active for the first time since getting hurt in Week 12. One would assume he’ll resume his role as the middle linebacker in the Eagles’ base defense. Walker’s return means Dannell Ellerbe is back to being inactive.
Nick Foles will start at quarterback with Carson Wentz out for the season. Nate Sudfeld is active for the first time in his NFL career. He’s the backup to Foles. Tight end Trey Burton is the emergency quarterback.
Veteran offensive tackle Will Beatty is active for the first team since signing with the Eagles. The injury to Wisniewski opened an active game day spot for him.
Special teams demon Bryan Braman is active in his first game back with the Eagles.
Rasul Douglas is a healthy scratch for the first time since Week 1.
For the fourth week in a row, Shelton Gibson is active over Marcus Johnson at wide receiver.
Wendell Smallwood is a healthy scratch for the fifth game in a row.
