TAMPA -- The Eagles are debuting two more rookies on Sunday against the Bucs: wide receiver Marvin McNutt and linebacker Ryan Rau. Both are active; Rau was activated from the practice squad on Saturday.

The inactives are Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, Greg Salas, Chris Polk, Kurt Coleman, Matt Kopa, and Mike Patterson. Vick, McCoy, Coleman, and Patterson were all ruled out. Polk was questionable and continues to nurse a toe injury. Kopa was just signed this week, and Salas is still learning the offense.

With Coleman out, Colt Anderson starts at free safety. That's the only change to the starting secondary.

Bryce Brown continues to start at running back in LeSean McCoy's absence.
