The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their Wild Card game against the Chicago Bears.

The following seven players have been ruled INACTIVE: Carson Wentz, Sidney Jones, Mike Wallace, D.J. Alexander, Bruce Hector, Matt Pryor, and Chance Warmack.

Wentz, Jones, Wallace, and Alexander were all ruled out on Friday.

Nick Foles will start in place of Wentz. Nate Sudfeld will once again serve as the backup quarterback.

Jones’ absence means it’ll be Rasul Douglas and Avonte Maddox starting on the outside with Cre’Von LeBlanc playing in the slot. Maddox is active after being ruled questionable on the final injury report.

Wallace being out means the Eagles have the following active receivers: Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Golden Tate, Jordan Matthews, and Shelton Gibson.

Alexander will miss his third game in a row. His absence hurts special teams depth.

Hector isn’t needed with Fletcher Cox, Timmy Jernigan, Haloti Ngata, and Treyvon Hester ahead of him on the depth chart.

Pryor is inactive once again after being active for the first time in his career last weekend. Pryor did not play a single snap against Washington, however.

Warmack is a healthy scratch. $2.03 million cap hit for the 2018 season.

Jason Peters, Michael Bennett, and Isaac Seumalo are all ACTIVE after being ruled questionable on the final injury report. Seumalo is expected to return to the starting lineup at left guard, which means Stefen Wisniewski is headed back to the bench.

Shelton Gibson is active this week after being a healthy scratch for the first time this season in Week 17.

Philadelphia Eagles Inactive List

QB Carson Wentz - Injury.

CB Sidney Jones - Injury.

WR Mike Wallace - Injury.

Chicago Bears Inactive List

Trey Burton is OUT after being a late addition to the Bears’ injury report on Saturday evening. Chicago’s starting tight end won’t get to play against his former team. That’s a hit to the Bears’ offense.

Bears starting safety Eddie Jackson is ACTIVE despite apparently not doing much in warmups or practice this week. To be determined just how effective the All-Pro defensive back will be.
