GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)

The Packers' pass rush is getting a boost with linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry both active for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Matthews is expected to play with a club on his right hand after missing four games with a thumb injury. Perry has missed three games with a foot injury.

Guard T.J. Lang is active after leaving last week's loss to the Bears with a concussion.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is inactive a second straight week with a hamstring injury. Nick Foles is starting a week after throwing seven touchdown passes in a win over Oakland.

Philadelphia will also be without starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher (pectoral muscle).

As expected, Seneca Wallace is starting at quarterback for the Packers with Aaron Rodgers out with a left collarbone injury.
