    The Eagles will have all their starters for Saturday afternoon's playoff game against the Falcons. 

    Veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) is active after coming into the weekend listed as questionable. Ellerbe was limited early in the week but was a full participant in Friday's practice. 

    The extra weeks of preparation allowed the Eagles to get healthy. Brandon Graham (ankle) was able to heal up and practice all week. 

    Sidney Jones (hamstring) is inactive. Jones landed on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury and was listed as questionable. 

    Jones, their second-round pick, was activated to the 53-man roster before the regular season finale. He played 29 snaps against the Cowboys before cramping up. With Jones inactive, fellow rookie Rasul Douglas is active. 

    Here are the Eagles' other inactive players: Wendell Smallwood, Marcus Johnson, Elijah Qualls, Steven Means, Will Beatty, Destiny Vaeao. 

    The one surprise inactive player is Vaeao, who has been a rotational defensive tackle all season. With Vaeao out, the Eagles have just Beau Allen as a rotational DT on Saturday. Expect Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry to play inside quite a bit. 

    With Beatty inactive, the Eagles' backup offensive linemen are Chance Warmack and Isaac Seumalo. Warmack would be the next guy in at guard and Seumalo would be the next guy in at tackle. Seumalo might also play some snaps at tight end or fullback. 

    No surprises in the Falcons' inactives: Marvin Hall, Terrence Magee, Leon McFadden, Sean Weatherspoon, Sean Harlow, Austin Pasztor, Eric Saubert.
