The Eagles inactives list will not top the Green Bay Packers in terms of value to team. Aaron Rodgers will be out for the Packers today, and for the next few weeks, with a broken collarbone. But the Eagles’ inactives list features two pretty prominent names this week as well.

Michael Vick is out with a strained hamstring, which isn’t a surprise considering Vick was listed as doubtful in this week’s injury report. That loss isn’t as big, because the Eagles have a solid backup in Nick Foles, who it appears will be the starter even when Vick comes back.

The bigger loss for the Eagles today, is starting right cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who will be out with a pectoral injury. Losing Fletcher, who has been the Eagles most consistent cornerback this season, is still a blow to a resurgent Eagles defense, but not nearly as big of a blow as it would be if Aaron Rodgers was starting at quarterback.

Look for the Eagles to give Curtis Marsh, Brandon Boykin, and even Roc Carmichael snaps at the right cornerback spot today.

Here are the Eagles remaining inactives.
