Three Key Starters Out For Lions


Coming off the bye week, the Eagles were healthy as the entire team practiced fully on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game in Detroit. However, defensive tackle Bennie Logan (calf) was added to the Eagles' injury report as a limited participant following Thursday's practice and did not participate on Friday.

Logan was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game, but head coach Doug Pederson did say the defensive tackle is already feeling better.

"As I mentioned, it definitely feels better. We are going to hold him for practice today just so that he can get rest on it, and we'll evaluate him again tomorrow and then Sunday, as well," Pederson said.

For the Lions, seven players missed Wednesday's practice including a number of key starters - defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (ankle), tight end Eric Ebron (ankle and knee), wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. (foot), linebacker DeAndre Levy (knee and quad) and cornerback Nevin Lawson (illness). In addition, starting safety Tavon Wilson was limited with a neck injury.

By Friday, Detroit still was plagued with injuries and officially ruled Ansah, Ebron and Levy out for Sunday's game. Jones Jr. and Wilson returned to practice as full participants but both are still questionable to play in the Week 5 matchup.
