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.
