Eagles Get Back Middle Linebacker for Super Bowl LII

The next hour and a half is just the calm before the storm. The Eagles are about to play in Super Bowl LII. 

For the game, they'll get back middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. The 32-year-old missed the NFC Championship Game with a hamstring injury, but he wasn't missing this one. 

The same can be said for Tim Jernigan and Ronald Darby, who both dealt with illness this week in Minnesota. They're active and ready to go; just keep an eye on them to see if they get a little fatigued. 

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

With Vaeao inactive, the Eagles are going with three active defensive tackles, something they did against the Falcons in the divisional game. Expect Fletcher Cox to play nearly the whole game on Sunday night. 

Patriots inactives: RB Mike Gillislee, DL Alan Branch, LB David Harris, OL Cole Croston, WR Kenny Britt, TE Jake Hollister, WR Bernard Reedy.
