Philadelphia Eagles vs. Detroit Lions, Sunday October 31
The Detroit Lions moved veteran defensive end Da’Shawn Hand from injured reserve to active squad on Saturday, and Hand is active and is expected to make its 2021 debut today as the Lions host the Philadelphia Eagles at Ford Field.
Hand, who is in his fourth year with Detroit, faced injuries early in his career. As a rookie, he missed three games in 2018, 13 games in 2019, six games last year and missed the first seven games of the season with a groin injury at training camp. Hand had a great camp and preseason before the injury. It’s unclear how much he’ll play today, but it adds even more quality to Detroit on an already deep line of defense.
Detroit listed five players as questionable in Friday’s injury report – outside linebacker Trey Flowers (knee), cornerback Jerry Jacobs (illness), cornerback AJ Parker (neck), running back D’Andre Swift (groin) and running back Jamaal Williams (thigh) ). ) – and the team will have to do without two of these players today.
Both Williams and Parker are inactive.
