Rookie wide receiver Jeff Janis is inactive, meaning the Packers will go with four receivers.

Also inactive for the Packers are quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Demetri Goodson, linebacker Carl Bradford and defensive tackle Luther Robinson.

In addition to Bostick, linebacker Jayrone Elliott also is inactive with an injury. He is out with a hamstring injury. Both injuries were sustained in last week's game against Chicago.

For the Eagles, quarterback Nick Foles, safety Earl Wolff, cornerback Jaylen Watkins, center Julian Vandervelde, tackle Dennis Kelly, wide receiver Jeff Maehl and defensive end Taylor Hart are inactive. Maehl, one of Philadelphia's top four receivers, is out with a foot injury. He had been listed as probable this week.
