Sam Bradford inactive vs. Lions; Jason Kelce, Jason Peters both in the lineup

DETROIT -- Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the second consecutive week, meaning Mark Sanchez will start at quarterback in Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions.

The good news for the Eagles is that left tackle Jason Peters and center Jason Kelce are both active for the game and in the starting lineup. Peters and Kelce were questionable.

The Eagles' inactives are wide receiver Jonathan Krause, running back Ryan Mathews, defensive back Denzel Rice, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, tight end Zach Ertz, and defensive end Brandon Bair.

Ertz and Mathews were declared out because of concussions. The other players are healthy scratches.

Bradford was questionable for the game and hoped to play, but he is still recovering from a separated left shoulder.

Sanchez is starting his second consecutive week for the Eagles -- and also his second consecutive Thanksgiving.

The Eagles are dressing eight offensive linemen for the first time this season, with backuo centers Julian Vandervelde and Josh Andrews both active for the game. That offers insurance in case Kelce has a problem with his knee.
