Safety Patrick Chung was declared inactive for Sunday's game, meaning he will not dress and will miss the game.

The news is not a shock as he was deemed doubtful, but it means Philadelphia will be facing Denver – one of the top passing teams in the NFL – without one of its starting safeties. Chung will miss the game due to a injured shoulder.

Rookie Earl Wolff will start at safety in place of Chung, who had started the first three games for Philadelphia. .

The Broncos will also be missing their starting cornerback as Champ Bailey is inactive, also because of a foot sprain.

Eagles inactives: QB Matt Barkley, S Patrick Chung, CB Shaun Prater, T Matt Tobin, T Dennis Kelly, DE Damion Square, TE Emil Igwenagu.

Broncos inactives: CB Champ Bailey, OL Chris Kuper, RB CJ Anderson, LB Paris Lenon, T Winston Justice, DL Sylvester Williams and QB Zac Dysert.

Reaction:

Chung will sit this week out, Earl Wolff will make his first NFL start in this place.  This will be a match-up to watch as I would expect Peyton Manning to go after the rookie early-and-often.

Vinny Curry is also active for the second straight week, the hope here is the Eagles use him more this week to try to get some pressure on Manning.
