Eagles vs. Falcons: Week 6 inactives: Vick 3rd QB

The Eagles and Falcons announced their inactive players for Week 6:

Eagles: DT Brodrick Bunkley, LB Keenan Clayton, WR Riley Cooper, TE Clay Harbor, RB Jerome Harrison, CB Trevard Lindley, LT Jason Peters, QB Michael Vick

Falcons: CB Dominique Franks, RB Gartrell Johnson, G Mike Johnson, DT Trey Lewis, T Garrett Reynolds, DE Lawrence Sidbury, LB Sean Weatherspoon, QB John Parker Wilson

There are a few surprises on the Eagles inactive list, including Lindley getting benched and Cooper not suiting up despite practicing this week. With Cooper out, Chad Hall gets to be the 4th wide receiver once again. As expected, Michael Vick won't be playing this week as he will be the emergency third quarterback. If Kevin Kolb has any hope of taking over the starting gig, he's going to have to be brilliant today. Both Bunkley and Peters are likely out for the next few weeks. Daniel Te'o-Nesheim will get his first playing time with the Eagles and will likely see some time at defensive tackle with Bunkley out. The Eagles must feel that the recently acquired Harrison will need more time to learn the offense so they will use Eldra Buckley at backup running back this week.

Another big Philly Sports Sunday. Go Birds and Phillies!
