For the first time since Oct. 27, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is in uniform on game day.
Vick, now the Eagles’ backup to Nick Foles, is active against the Cardinals for today’s game at the Linc. He’s eligible to play after missing the past three games and five of the past six with a hamstring injury.
Rookie safety Earl Wolff will miss his second straight game with a knee injury. Wolff didn’t practice all week and wasn’t expected to suit up. Patrick Chung will start in Wolff’s place.
Also inactive are quarterback Matt Barkley, cornerback Curtis Marsh, running back Matthew Tucker, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, and offensive tackles Matt Tobin and Dennis Kelly.
Rookie inside linebacker Jake Knott, who missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, is active for the first time since the Oct. 20 home game against Dallas.
For the Cards, speedy running back Andre Ellington is inactive after suffering a knee injury in practice earlier in the week.
Ellington, the Cardinals’ leading rusher, has the highest yards-per-carry average (6.0) among NFL running backs with at least 45 carries. He has 441 yards on 73 carries and two rushing touchdowns.
