Mini-Editorials4 reasons the Eagles will beat the Lions in Week 3 matchup

He has logged just one catch in two National Football League games, but Philadelphia loves Arcega-Whiteside's talent, with head coach Doug Pederson raving about him all summer.

The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to be without wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, with reports indicating that neither will be back until Week 5 against the New York Jets.

"Carson? Yeah", Pederson said, agreeing with the assessment that Wentz is fine.

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.

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

"We'll see today and then obviously wait until game day", he said. "If they have to get any conditioning in-between or after practice, they do their own conditioning today and tomorrow and the rest of this week", Pederson explained.

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

On Wednesday, the Eagles chose to cancel practice in favor of a walkthrough. Goedert was ruled out before the game started because of a calf injury.

It's a tough break for an Eagles team that has been beat up over the first two weeks of the season. Last season, they had a Thursday game against the Giants in October.

"When you've got a veteran football team, it does", Pederson said about making the change workable.
