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.
