FOXBORO, Mass. -- The Eagles' starting wide receiver tandem of Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin both will not play Friday night against the New England Patriots in the second game of the preseason. Meanwhile, rookie running back Henry Josey better have his running shoes on as he backs up LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles with the other three running backs on the roster (Matthew Tucker, Chris Polk and David Fluellen) all sitting out tonight's game with injuries as well. Wide receiver Damaris Johnson may also get some work at running back.
Also sitting out tonight's game are cornerback Nolan Carroll II, cornerback Jaylen Watkins, linebacker Jake Knott and center Julian Vandervelde.
With Maclin and Cooper out, Ifeanyi Momah and Arrelious Benn will start, with Brad Smith in the slot.
