CB Bradley Fletcher Inactive

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Cornerback Bradley Fletcher will not play for the Eagles against the Green Bay Packers after he was listed as questionable with a pectoral injury. With Fletcher down, the expectation is that Brandon Boykin and Roc Carmichael will both get playing time on the outside. Cary Williams and Curtis Marsh are the other two active cornerbacks for the Eagles.

With Seneca Wallace at quarterback for the Packers instead of Rodgers, the Packers are expected to lean heavily on their running game with Eddie Lacy and James Starks. Still, the absence of Fletcher will be felt against a solid group of Packers receivers that includes Jordy Nelson and James Jones.

Quarterback Michael Vick is inactive for the second straight week as he continues to recover from a lingering hamstring injury. Running back Matthew Tucker, linebacker Jake Knott, tackle Matt Tobin, tackle Dennis Kelly and wide receiver B.J. Cunningham round out the inactives for the Eagles.

For the Packers, linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry both return from injury. Matthews will play with a cast on his injured arm. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Chris Harper, cornerback James Nixon, linebacker Andy Mulumba, tackle Derek Sherrod, defensive end Josh Boyd and defensive end C.J. Wilson are the seven inactives for the Packers.
