Eagles-Vikings Inactives

Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley is the lone Eagles starter out for tonight's game. Bradley is still recovering from a dislocated elbow he suffered against the Cowboys in Week 14, and hopes to be ready for the playoffs in two (or three) weeks.

Recently signed cornerback Gerard Lawson, also known as a return specialist, is inactive this week as he continues to learn the Eagles playbook and scheme.

Both Mike Patterson and Keenan Clayton battled through injuries this week, but both are active and will play tonight.

The other Eagles inactives are: QB Kafka (3rd QB), CB Hughes, T Howard, G Wells, LB Clayton and DE Te'o-Nesheim

For the Vikings, an extra two days of rest did little to help quarterback Brett Favre. He has reportedly yet to pass his concussion tests, and is inactive tonight against the Eagles. Running back Adrian Peterson, however, is active tonight and will start for Minnesota.

The other Vikings inactives are: QB Bomar (3rd QB), WR Lewis, WR Baskett, S Williams, S Johnson, T Welch and DT Evans.

Finally, it's worth noting how many people worked tirelessly over the past two days to make Lincoln Financial Field a safe environment after Sunday's snowstorm. 615 people spent a combined 47 hours preparing for and combating the storm, and 1300 truckloads of snow were removed from the stadium. When all was said and done, the crew removed over 2.63 million pounds of snow.

Now, finally, it's time for some football in South Philadelphia!
