The inactives besides Wolff are quarterback Matt Barkley, cornerback Curtis Marsh, running back Matthew Tucker, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, tackle Matt Tobin, and tackle Dennis Kelly.

With only Earl Wolff declared out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Eagles needed six healthy scratches. The inactives besides Wolff are quarterback Matt Barkley, cornerback Curtis Marsh, running back Matthew Tucker, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, tackle Matt Tobin, and tackle Dennis Kelly. 

Damaris Johnson is active for the Eagles, meaning they're dressing six wide receivers. Jake Knott missed four games with a hamstring injury and is active again. That's why Acho is inactive. 

Michael Vick is active after missing three games. He will be the backup quarterback.

Arizona will play without running back Andre Ellington, who is inactive with their knee injury. Ellington is valuable in both the running and passing game, so his absence is especially noteworthy.
