The Lions will be shorthanded facing the Eagles on Sunday.

Detroit’s official injury report lists three important starters — tight end Eric Ebron, defensive end Ezekiel Ansah and linebacker DeAndre Levy — as out.

Lions running back Dwayne Washington is listed as doubtful and almost certainly won’t play. Washington isn’t a starter, but with running back Ameer Abdullah on injured reserve, Detroit had expected Washington to play a big role in the offense. Washington also returns kickoffs, so his absence will hurt on offense and on special teams.

The Eagles are relatively healthy, with defensive tackle Bennie Logan listed as questionable and everyone else ready to play.

    I have a gut feeling that it’s not gonna go very well for them.

    I rarely have a gut feeling that it will go very well for them even with all those guys.

    I dunno seem like a trap gam to me. A little to many people are picking the Eagles to win easily. Stafford sometimes goes unconscious and rips teams up, and even though the Eagles defense has kept teams to under 7 points per game. They are still susceptible to the long ball. There’s been a lot of wide open deep .passes dropped or over thrown by there opponents. Also they got a new coach and you never know how they will have there team ready after a bye.

    The only thing that makes me more confident in the Eagles is the fact that Ansah isn’t playing. I was worried about him.

    YEP, be cautious Doug and Jim! Keep your guys heads right! keep em focused!
    thinking they’ll easily take this game is a recipe for disaster!
    I am glad Ansah is not in too!

    The Lions should just forfeit with the beating thats coming. The only way the Eagles lose this game is if they get lost going to the stadium.
    Eagles 35 Lions 10
