The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Divisional Round game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Dannell Ellerbe is ACTIVE after being ruled questionable on the Eagles’ final injury report. Ellerbe has been dealing with a hamstring issue but he’s expected to start at middle linebacker in Philadelphia’s 4-3 base formations.
Rookie cornerback Sidney Jones is INACTIVE after being ruled questionable on the final injury report with a hamstring issue. Jones was active for the first time in career in Week 17. The Eagles chose to keep Rasul Douglas up over him.
Destiny Vaeao is a healthy scratch for the first time all year. The Eagles only have three defensive tackles active: Fletcher Cox, Tim Jernigan, and Beau Allen. This suggests Philly plans to give those guys a lot of snaps instead of using their regular four-man DT rotation.
Shelton Gibson is notably active.
