Falcons vs. Eagles inactives: Akeem Spence set to make team debut

No surprises on the list of inactive players for the Eagles heading into Sunday night's showdown with the Atlanta Falcons.

In fact, it's the same exact list as last week against Washington.

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee), tackle Jordan Mailata (back), and quarterback Nate Sudfeld (wrist) are out due to injury.

Defensive end Daeshon Hall and Shareef Miller are inactive. Defensive tackle Akeem Spence, signed this week after Malik Jackson (foot) went on Injured Reserve, is active.

Cornerback Craig James, promoted from the practice squad this week, is also active to make his Eagles debut. This means the Eagles will have 10 defensive backs (five cornerbacks and five safeties) active to contend with the Falcons' plethora of pass catchers in Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu, and Austin Hooper.

Rookie guard Nate Herbig and guard/tackle Matt Pryor are the other inactive players for the Eagles.

Meanwhile, the Falcons have all of their key players active for Sunday night.
