The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their NFC Championship Game game against the Minnesota Vikings

Veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is OUT after being ruled questionable on the final injury report with a hamstring issue. Ellerbe was getting the bulk of snaps at middle linebacker in Philadelphia’s base defense, so this is a noteworthy absence. Najee Goode will likely get those snaps instead now.

Rookie cornerback Sidney Jones is INACTIVE for the second week in a row. Jones was dealing with a hamstring issue last week but he was full go in practice this week, so it appears the 2017 second-round pick is a healthy scratch.

Ellerbe being out opened up a spot for backup defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao on the 53-man roster. Last week the Eagles only went with three defensive tackles and kept Vaeao as a healthy scratch.

Philadelphia Eagles Inactive List

LB Dannell Ellerbe - Injury.

CB Sidney Jones - Depth cornerback.

WR Marcus Johnson - Depth wide receiver.

DT Elijah Qualls - Depth defensive tackle.

DE Steven Means - Depth defensive end.

RB Wendell Smallwood - Fifth string running back.

OT Will Beatty - Depth offensive tackle.

Minnesota Vikings Inactive List

Former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is ACTIVE as Case Keenum’s backup. Can you imagine if he’s forced into the game?
