Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was active for Saturday’s playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.

However, rookie cornerback Sidney Jones, the other Philadelphia player who was listed as questionable, was among the team’s inactives.

Ellerbe, who signed with the Eagles in November, was expected to play after he was a full participant in Thursday’s practice. He made eight tackles while starting the final two games.

Jones, a 2017 second-round pick, was activated in Week 17 after recovering from a torn Achilles tendon sustained in a workout before the draft.

He played in the final regular-season game against the Dallas Cowboys and recorded two tackles.

Other inactives for the Eagles were Will Beatty, Marcus Johnson, Steven Means, Elijah Qualls, Wendall Smallwood and Destiny Vaeao.

Atlanta, which did not have any players on the final injury report, listed Marvin Hall, Terrence Magee, Leon McFadden, Sean Weatherspoon, Sean Harlow, Austin Pasztor and Eric Saubert as inactives.
