Eric Ebron, DeAndre Levy and Ezekiel Ansah are not expected to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles after missing a third straight practice Friday morning.

Ebron is dealing with ankle and knee injuries that he suffered in Sunday's loss against Chicago, while Levy (quad/knee) hasn't played since Week 1 and Ansah since Week 2 (high ankle sprain).

That's a huge blow for a Lions team that has fallen into the NFC North cellar after three straight losses and now must play the unbeaten Eagles.

Ebron is the club's second-leading receiver with 210 yards on 18 catches, while Levy is their top linebacker and Ansah their top defensive end.
