Defensive tackle Beau Allen (knee) and tight end Trey Burton (back) will not play against the Chicago Bears. Allen misses the first game of his career after having never missed a contest in the NFL or in his four years at Wisconsin. 

Burton, a contributor to the offense and special teams unit, has 111 receiving yards and a career-high two touchdowns but will also miss today's contest. Kicker Jake Elliott cleared the concussion protocol this week and will play.  

Listed as inactive for the Eagles include Allen, Burton, T Will Beatty, LB Dannell Ellerbe, WR Marcus Johnson, RB Wendell Smallwood, and QB Nate Sudfeld. Rookie wide receiver Shelton Gibson is active for the first time. 

Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks will play after being listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game. 

For the Bears, QB Mark Sanchez, WR Josh Bellamy, S DeAndre Houston-Carson, CB Bryce Callahan, LB Danny Trevathan, RT Tom Compton, and DE Roy Robertson-Harris are all listed as inactive.
