Eagles at Packers: GB’s Clay Matthews and Nick Perry to play, key inactives


The Green Bay Packers are trying to weather the storm after getting the news that Aaron Rodgers is done for the season after injuring his shoulder last week.

It won’t be easy against the hot offense of the Eagles, with a quarterback in Nick Foles who threw seven touchdowns in Oakland last week. The Packers get a boost from the return of left outside linebacker Nick Perry, who has been out for a month. They also get the good news that Clay Matthews is a full-go today.

Those two are huge to the success of the remainder of the Packers’ season, as they’ll likely have to get defensive to win football games with Seneca Wallace managing the game behind center.

Here’s the full list of inactives for the Eagles at Green Bay via Packers.com:
