After going through training camp and the preseason games, the Eagles will finally start the regular season Sunday, taking on the Detroit Lions at Ford Field Sunday at 1 p.m.
For a few of the players, their regular-season debuts will be on hold, at least for the game.
The Eagles and Lions announced the players who will be inactive at 11:30 a.m. Among the players who will be on the sidelines watching the game is quarterback Ian Book.
Book, who the Eagles claimed off waivers after he was let go by the New Orleans Saints, was expected to not dress because the Eagles typically dress two quarterbacks.
Being that Jalen Hurts is starting the game and Gardner Minshew has experience with the offense and Book just joined the team, Book will have the earpiece in his ear listening to offensive coordinator Shane Steichen call in the plays.
Running back Trey Sermon, another player the Eagles claimed off waivers, is the fourth running back on the roster right now,
