Eagles' Earl Wolff, Panthers' Philly Brown are inactive

PHILADELPHIA -- As the Eagles' offensive linemen have gotten healthy, their game-day inactive list has become more revealing.

For example, safety Earl Wolff is inactive for tonight's game against the Carolina Panthers. Chris Prosinski, a safety waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars in September, is active. Wolff, who started in place of the injured Nate Allen last week in Houston, is not. That suggests Wolff's stock has taken a nosedive.

Wide receiver Jeff Maehl and defensive back Jaylen Watkins are also inactive. Both have been active in recent weeks, as the inactive list was populated by injured players. The only injured player on tonight's inactive list is quarterback Nick Foles. His absence formally makes Matt Barkley the backup to Mark Sanchez.

For the Panthers, wide receiver Philly Brown is inactive. Brown, who went to Cardinal O'Hara High School in Springfield, Pennsylvania, sustained a concussion last week. He was cleared through the NFL concussion protocol during the week, but was not able to get in the full slate of practices.

The Panthers have their own answer to Wolff. David Foucault, who started at left tackle for the Panthers last week, is inactive tonight. Byron Bell, who was injured, is starting at left tackle.

Inactive for the Eagles: Foles, Wolff, Watkins, Maehl, defensive end Taylor Hart and offensive linemen Julian Vandervelde and Dennis Kelly.

Inactive for the Panthers: Brown, Foucault, cornerback Bene Benwikere, running back Chris Ogbonnaya, safety Robert Lester, guard Trai Turner, tackle Mike Remmers.

For the Eagles, that means David Molk is the primary backup to center Jason Kelce, while Andrew Gardner would back up both guard and tackle spots. Evan Mathis is making his first start at left guard since injuring his knee in the season opener against Jacksonville.
