Here’s the ding report for tomorrow’s Eagles opener at Detroit:
Lions: G Tommy Kraemer (back) OUT; DT Levi Onwuzurike (back) OUT; SAF Ifeatu Melifonwu (hamstring) DOUBTFUL; LB Julian Okwara (hamstring) QUESTIONABLE; C Frank Ragnow (groin) QUESTIONABLE
The Eagles are at full capacity as they head into Week 1, while the Lions have a few more injuries to deal with.
Melifonwu, Okwara and Ragnow all were limited in practice all week, which could mean they don’t see playing time for the first game of the year.
With offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai on injured reserve, head coach Dan Campell said the team was looking into best options for a replacement. Offensive line injuries are now piled on top of that setback and leave the Lions in a difficult spot to kick off the new season.
