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.
