The Eagles have placed 7 players on the inactives list ahead of the season opener.
CB Mario Goodrich: With a plethora of corners active today, Goodrich will be inactive.
QB Tanner McKee (3rd QB): The rookie will serve as the team's emergency quarterback and can only be made active if the first two QBs get injured.
DT Moro Ojomo: The rookie suffered a concussion in the second preseason game and is back to full health.
TE Albert Okwuegbunam: Acquired at the end of August, the former Denver Bronco is still learning the offense.
RB Rashaad Penny: Acquired in the offseason, Penny will have to wait to play in his first regular-season game as an Eagle.
CB Eli Ricks: A standout in preseason, the undrafted free agent will not dress in the season opener.
OL Tyler Steen: The third-round pick in 2023 is the only inactive offensive lineman today.
For the second consecutive season, the Eagles head into the first game with all 22 starters healthy.
Punter Arryn Siposs and wide receiver Britain Covey were elevated from the practice squad and will be key contributors to special teams against the Patriots.
The Patriots will be without their two starting offensive guards and a starting wide receiver. This could provide an advantage for an active Eagles defensive line going up against a banged-up Patriots O-line. – Written by Owen Boyle
