Allen Park – The Detroit Lions will be down another integral starter against the Philadelphia Eagles. On Friday, the team ruled out tight end Eric Ebron.

Ebron has been battling a number of injuries. He missed the entire preseason with an ankle injury. He’s still dealing with that issue, combined with a knee injury he suffered last weekend against the Bears. He’s also missed practice time this year with a back injury.

The Lions will deploy a combination of Cole Wick, Khari Lee and Clay Harbor to fill in for Ebron.

Additionally, Detroit ruled out linebacker DeAndre Levy (quad/knee) and defensive end Ziggy Ansah (anke). Both have missed multiple weeks of practice.

Running back Dwayne Washington, who suffered an ankle injury in Chicago, is doubtful. Wide receiver Marvin Jones (foot), and safeties Tavon Wilson (neck) and Don Carey (ribs) are questionable.
