Eagles preparing for Green Bay rushing attack

Eagles defense preparing for Green Bay rushing attack

PHILADELPHIA - Even though Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not play against the Eagles on Sunday, Philadelphia has been preparing to stop the dangerous and powerful rushing attack of Green Bay.

Rodgers broke his collarbone in the Packers' Monday night loss to Chicago. He's expected to miss several weeks, but in the mean time, the team will have to rely on Seneca Wallace and its bruising running game.

Eddie Lacy and James Starks are two of the more physical runners in the NFL. They've captured the attention of the Eagles defense in practice this week.

Philadelphia understands that if it can stop Green Bay's ground game, chances of victory increase facing a depleted passing game.
