Lions rolling into Philadelphia full strength

Thirteen players were listed on the Philadelphia Eagles injury report on Wednesday.

Six of them, all starters, did not participate.

The Lions meanwhile didn't have a player sit out of their preparation day, even tackle Taylor Decker was back to work with his back injury.

The NFL often times is a battle of attrition, but the Lions say that no matter lined up against them on Sunday, they need to be ready for their best.

"Maybe just a little bit more for me to look at, but it's a challenge anytime you play in this league," Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said.

The Lions will practice again Thursday and Friday before leaving for Philadelphia on Saturday.
