Lions cornerback Darius Slay and Eagles safety Earl Wolff are inactive for Sunday's game between NFC North-leading Detroit and Philadelphia.
Slay injured his knee in practice Thursday. The rookie had started three games this season, including the Lions' win over Green Bay on Thanksgiving Day because Chris Houston was injured. Houston is back in the lineup against the Eagles.
Wolff, who replaced Patrick Chung as the starter midway through the year, misses his third straight game with a knee injury. Chung starts in his place.
Backup linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring) is among Philadelphia's other inactives.

The Lions at one point lead the Eagles 14-0 but found a way to fall behind 28-20 midway through the fourth quarter. At that point, Matt Stafford was determined to come back, but oop, there goes a fumbled snap. Stafford had an easy shot to recover but he did one of those things where he tried to pick it up and run, instead dropping it altogether.Other great moments of Matt Stafford in the snow:
It’s a snowy game in Philadelphia between the Eagles and the Lions.
On a third-down conversion Calvin Johnson fell to the ground, a ground that is covered in a least a foot of snow, and slid face to ground. When he came up, you could see more snow than you could see Johnson through his face mask.
Looks like Johnson also wants to look the part...
The conditions were at an all-time worse. Endless snowfall that topped out at over 8 inches. The Eagles struggled mightily in the first half. Down 14, they were left out for dead.But Chip Kelly proved to the fans that this isn't the same team from the last few years. This was his Eagles team.The Eagles marched back and handed Lions a loss by the score of 34-20. It solidified...

The Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles are currently playing in a blizzard and it is a mess. Reggie Bush was injured in warm ups when he slipped, Matt Stafford has fumbled two snaps, and neither team can move the ball. Both of these high-powered offenses have been completely neutralized by the snow and is going to make for a boring and sloppy game.
Lions halfback Reggie Bush slipped and aggravated his calf injury during warmups and wasn't able to start Sunday's game against Philadelphia.Fantasy Spin:Joique Bell was in the backfield for the Lions' first offensive series. There's been no definitive word from the team as to whether or not Bush will play, but given the snowy weather conditions there probably won...
The snow is coming down heavy in Philadelphia today as the Eagles take on the visiting Detroit Lions. The elements are making this match-up comical as it’s difficult for any phase of the game to excel in these conditions. Watch Megatron literally morph into a snowman after being tackled in the field of play.

LeSean McCoy set an Eagles record with 217 rushing yards Sunday in a 34-20 win over Detroit.Fantasy Spin:Roughly two thirds of his yardage came in the fourth quarter (148 yards). McCoy leads the NFL in rushing (1,305 yards on 261 carries) and is just four yards away from tying his career-high. He's a top-five fantasy running back.
A penalty call is a teaching moment for Jim Schwartz, but the Detroit Lions coach didn't know what to say to defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley after a pair of questionable flags in the fourth quarter.
The infractions, which have been panned by national broadcasters and columnists, played a big role in the Eagles game-tying drive early in the final quarter.
It used to be that the Detroit Lions would trot out Billy Sims or Barry Sanders and would take their licks as a middle of the pack team or an "also ran" in the NFC. Very rarely did they remain a competitive team and even when they did that, coaches like Wayne Fontes would bear the burden when they faltered.Now, the new look Lions are a pass-first team that relies on the...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer The Detroit Lions have lost three of four games, blowing fourth-quarter leads each time.
Detroit slipped and slid in the snow Sunday at Philadelphia, losing three of seven fumbles in a 34-20 defeat against the Eagles.
The Lions can't fall out of first place, even if the Chicago Bears beat the...
It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Philadelphia as the snow made for miserable conditions. The weather hindered the Eagles’ high octane offense predicated on speed and tempo. In a must-win game, LeSean McCoy rushed for 217 yards and 2 touchdowns setting a franchise record previously held by Steve Van Buren (205 yds). Shady single handedly carried them back from a...
Eagles 34, Lions 20, Sunday, December 8, 2013
Five game winning streak! Can I get an “amen”?
Stud of the week: LeSean McCoy. Duh. The previously (I believe) #3 ranked run defense in the NFL, anchored by Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley held him in check for more than 30 minutes. Unfortunately for them, the game had another half, and Shady RAN WILD. 217 rushing yards. 2 TDs....
