There have been hints that Detroit has a much improved defense this season, as they held Philip Rivers and the Chargers to 10 points this past week in Detroit.

© John Bazemore, AP Atlanta Falcons linebacker Vic Beasley (44) sacks Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, in Atlanta. Last season, they had a Thursday game against the Giants in October.

It doesn't seem likely that any of those three will play against the Lions.

"I mean it's a couple things", Pederson said when discussing the rare early-season practice-schedule shift. The most significant injury could be to defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.

The Eagles (1-1) have split a pair of competitive contests, beating NFC East rival Washington 32-27 before falling at Atlanta 24-20 this past Sunday night.

Philadelphia went through a "walk-through" practice this week instead of an actual practice due to the team's injuries. He told reporters Wednesday that he is planning to play against the Packers in a week.

The following Eagles didn't participate in the Thursday's practice: RB Corey Clement (shoulder), S Johnathan Cyprien (knee), TE Dallas Goedert (calf), WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen), WR Alshon Jeffery (calf), DT Tim Jernigan (foot), OL Jordan Mailata (back). Patricia, however, is preparing as normal. "We did the same thing previous year for Carolina, walked through on Wednesday and then practiced Thursday and Friday and then we played, so not really an uncommon thing". "Obviously, I got drafted here by him and he was part of that process, so I appreciate him a lot for giving me the chance".

"I'm ready", Arcega-Whiteside said, via the team's official website.
