Eagles - Falcons Inactives

Michael Vick will serve as the team's emergency quarterback for this afternoon's game in South Philadelphia. He will dress, but cannot enter the game until the fourth quarter, except due to injury. That rules out any wildcat packages, at least any that are quarterbacked by Vick.

Receiver Riley Cooper will also be inactive today. He is still recovering from a concussion suffered against the Redskins in Week 4. That means rookie Chad Hall will once again serve as the team's fourth receiver.

Newly acquired running back Jerome Harrison will be inactive as well for today's game. He was only able to practice on Thursday and Friday, and is still a bit too unfamiliar with the offense to play productively.

Also inactive for the Eagles are: CB Lindley, LB Clayton, T Peters, TE Harbor and DT Bunkley. Of course, Jason Peters and Brodrick Bunkley were ruled out by head coach Andy Reid on Friday.

For the Falcons, starting linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is inactive, and is the lone Falcons' starter to miss today's game. Also inactive for the Falcons are: QB Parker-Wilson (3rd QB), CB Franks, RB Johnson III, T Reynolds, G Johnson, DE Sidbury and DT Lewis.
