Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson is inactive for the Vikings -- and he's one of five starters inactive for Minnesota. They are also missing backup running back Toby Gerhart, starting cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes and Chris Cook, starting guard Brandon Fusco, starting tight end John Carlson. Quarterback Josh Freeman is the other inactive.

The Vikings' running backs are Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and Jerome Felton. Their cornerbacks are Marcus Sherals and former Eagle Shaun Prater. Rhett Ellison will start at tight end, and Joe Berger will start at guard in Fusco's place.

There are no surprises among the Eagles inactives.

Safety Earl Wolff and linebacker Najee Goode are both out because of injuries. They were each doubtful to play.

Quarterback Matt Barkley, cornerback Curtis Marsh, running back Matthew Tucker, and tackles Matt Tobin and Dennis Kelly are the other inactives.

Cornerbadk Cary Williams is active, as expected.
