Quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook sat out practice today in Philadelphia.
McNabb suffered a chest contusion on the final play of the first quarter Sunday against Pittsburgh and then Westbrook suffered an ankle injury on the first play of the second quarter.
While McNabb is fully expected to start Sunday, Westbrook's situation is very uncertain. He said on his radio show Monday night in Philly that his injury is close to a high ankle sprain and those are rarely one-week affairs.
Also missing practice were guard Shawn Andrews (back), fullback Tony Hunt (concussion) and tight end L.J. Smith (back). Andrews and Smith could miss the game Sunday.
"I can really kind of clump them all into a group here with the exception of [defensive end Victor] Abiamiri, Abiamiri [wrist] will be out,'' Philly coach Andy Reid said. "The rest of them have a chance, they all have a chance to play. We've just got to see how it goes here as the week goes on.''
The Eagles could get a boost, though, as wide receiver Kevin Curtis returned to practice. He has been out since undergoing surgery for a sports hernia last month. Originally, Curtis was expected to be out at least into October. He would add another dimension to the passing game along with standout rookie receiver DeSean Jackson.
"We'll see," Reid said of Curtis. "I'm going to do a little bit like I did with Reggie [Brown], when we brought Reggie back, just to see where he's at exactly. Things looked good in the rehab process that he went through and he looked like he had his speed and his quickness and all that, but you really don't know until you see him out there practicing. We'll see how he does. If he can play, he'll play and if not, then he won't.
