Eagles vs. Lions inactives

Eric Wilson 1920 081621

The Eagles will be without starting safety for a second straight game as Anthony Harris is out for today's matchup with the Detroit Lions. Harris was listed as doubtful on Friday with thumbs and groin injuries.

Marcus Epps started for Harris last week and tied a career high with 11 tackles against the Raiders. The Eagles activated safety K'Von Wallace from Injured Reserve on Saturday. Wallace started in Weeks 2 and 3 this season.

Linebacker Eric Wilson, who has 43 tackles on defense this season, is inactive. He was not on the injury report this week.

Running back Miles Sanders is not listed on the inactives list because he was placed on Injured Reserve to make room for Wallace's return. Sanders will miss today's game and the games against the Chargers and Broncos before he is eligible to return.

Wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was questionable with a back injury, but he is active. Defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu, who has been inactive for five games, is active.

Here are the rest of the Eagles' inactives:

• C/G Jack Anderson

• CB Mac McCain

• CB Zech McPhearson – McPhearson was ruled out on Friday with a hamstring injury. He did not practice all week. Tay Gowan is active for the first time for the Eagles since being acquired from the Cardinals in the Zach Ertz trade.

• G Sua Opeta

• QB Reid Sinnett – The quarterback was claimed off waivers Monday from the Miami Dolphins. Gardner Minshew is the No. 2 quarterback for the first time following the trade that sent Joe Flacco to the Jets. Minshew was inactive for the first seven games this season.
