With Eric Ebron reportedly out for Sunday, and more than likely Ezekiel Ansah and DeAndre Levy to join him, the Lions were absent five players from Thursday practice. Nevin Lawson, who was listed with an illness, returned to full practice, while the team got Marvin Jones back in limited drills as he works through a foot issue. However, Dwayne Washington and Don Carey were still out.
Dwayne Washington’s absence from practice could be problematic if it looks like he might not play on Sunday. The Lions ground game is already deficient and the rookie provided some measure of relief in the absence of Ameer Abdullah. Without Washington the Lions will only be able to field Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick at tailback, unless they decide to activate newly acquired Mike James from the practice squad.
Meanwhile, for the Eagles, defensive tackle Bennie Logan joined the injury report with a calf issue and was limited on Thursday, but it has otherwise been unchanged. The full reports follow below.
