Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles have two games in the next eight days, and the most important thing for him was making sure that everyone can participate. "If we're going live today, there would be a few guys having to miss practice, and I don't want that".

"Imagine both are listed as questionable on the injury report, but both look fine in practice to me", Birkett tweeted.

The Eagles host the Lions at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

Media access to practice is limited and special teams aren't something shown during the open portions, so it's hard to get a read on the status of C.J. Moore (heel).

Arcega-Whiteside, who played his collegiate football at Stanford, was selected by the Eagles in the second round (57th pick overall) of the NFL Draft back in April. The Atlanta Falcons won 24-20.

However, Whang was determined to take control of her health and went on to live cancer-free for seven years. Whang joined " House Hunters " in 1999 and was known to fans as the host who opened and closed the show.

"Both of those guys are getting treatment, they're rehabbing", Pederson said. "They're doing well and we'll have an update at the end of the week". Goedert was ruled out before the game started because of a calf injury.

Philadelphia is also down two tackles with Malik Jackson and Tim Jernigan suffering serious foot injuries in back-to-back weeks.

Jernigan is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

When asked if Wentz would've been able to practice without the change, Pederson was either generally surprised or went over the top protecting his star.

Pederson hasn't done it early in the season before. "That's why I'm here, to help this team win".
