Eagles vs. Vikings Week 16 Inactives: Favre out

The Eagles and Vikings have announced their inactive players for their Week 16 game:

Eagles: LB Shawn Bradley, LB Keenan Clayton, T Austin Howard, CB Brandon Hughes, QB Mike Kafka, CB Gerard Lawson, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, G Reggie Wells

Vikings: WR Hank Baskett, QB Rhett Bomar, DT Fred Evans, QB Brett Favre, S Tyrell Johnson, WR Greg Lewis, T Thomas Welch, S Madieu Williams

No surprise inactives for the Eagles this week. With newest Eagle Gerard Lawson inactive, expect Chad Hall to return kicks. Derrick Burgess is active for the first time since the Eagles signed him.

As for the Vikings, Favre failed to pass his concussion tests so they will turn to Joe Webb to start at quarterback. Stud running back Adrian Peterson is playing but will likely be limited.

With the division wrapped up, this isn't a huge game for the Eagles, but they can still get a first round bye if they win out and get some help. GO BIRDS!
