DENVER -- Eagles safety Patrick Chung made the trip to Denver Saturday but will not play today against the Broncos. Chung suffered a shoulder injury in the Eagles' loss to Kansas City.

This should give rookie Earl Wolff his first NFL start, against the league's top offense.

Other Eagles inactives include OT Dennis Kelly, who is healthy again after back surgery but has only been practicing a week, QB Matt Barkley, CB Shaun Prater, OT Matt Tobin, DL Damion Square and TE Emil Igwenagu.

The Broncos, meanwhile, will be without corner Champ Bailey, who had been questionable with a foot injury. Bailey practiced this week on a limited basis.
