Lions-Eagles inactives: Dwayne Washington OUT, Marvin Jones IN

The Lions will play with just two running backs against the Eagles.

When the Detroit Lions chose not to promote Mike James from the practice squad, it looked like rookie Dwayne Washington may be good to go against the Philadelphia Eagles despite being labeled as doubtful on the injury report. However, Washington is inactive for Sunday and will not play.

That means the Lions’ only active running backs this week will be Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner. The Lions will also have fullback Michael Burton for additional carries, if necessary.

Marvin Jones is active and will play against the Eagles, despite dealing with a foot injury all week. All the other Lions listed as questionable, including Don Carey and Tavon Wilson are active

On the Eagles side, defensive tackle Bennie Logan, who was listed as questionable with a calf injury, is active this week. This means that all of the Eagles inactive players are healthy scratches. Here is a look at each team’s inactive players for this week.
