Other inactive players for Philadelphia: RB Wendell Smallwood, OT Will Beatty, WR Marcus Johnson, CB Sidney Jones, DE Steven Means and DT Elijah Qualls.

Inactive players for Minnesota: QB Teddy Bridgewater, QB Kyle Sloter, RB Mack Brown, G Danny Isidora, C Cornelius Edison, DE Tashawn Bower and DT Shamar Stephen (knee).
