NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Lions are starting to get healthy among their running backs, with Dwayne Washington and Theo Riddick both avoiding any negative game time status. Both will be active for Sunday, and tight end Eric Ebron is questionable. However, the Lions are losing Darius Slay, who has been ruled out following his hamstring injury sustained against Washington the prior Sunday.

Slay joins DeAndre Levy on the sidelines, who is still working through issues with his knee and quad. Riley Reiff and Corey Robinson, both of whom had been out Wednesday and Thursday, participated in limited practice and are questionable to play Sunday. Nevin Lawson is also questionable following a foot injury that appeared on the injury reports on Thursday.

The Texans will be without linebacker Brian Peters, while Lamar Miller has been marked questionable to play. The Texans also placed tackle Derek Newton on Reserve/Injured prior to the final game status report. The full reports follow below.
