Updated: The Eagles say running back-kick returner Dion Lewis was in a car accident Sunday afternoon. Lewis was uninjured, a team spokesman said, but was shaken up, and the team decided to deactivate him for tonight's game. Ronnie Brown will return kicks.

Special teams coordinator Bobby April defended Dion Lewis to reporters Thursday, but the rookie running back and kick returner is inactive for tonight's clash with the Cowboys.

Also inactive are CB Curtis Marsh, S Jarrad Page, LB Keenan Clayton, OL Julian Vendervelde, OL Winston Justice, and DE Phillip Hunt.
