Andrews Sighting

Shawn Andrews says his back is feeling better. No word on a return to practice for the surgically repaired right guard, who hasn't played since Week 2.

Andrews Sighting


   Shawn Andrews strolled through the Eagles' locker room Friday, his red "fro-hawk" still as bright and peppy as when he returned from California Thanksgiving week.

"Better," Andrews said, when asked how his surgically repaired back is feeling. He has not played since leaving the game against the Cowboys in Week 2. Andrews still seems a longshot to return to the field this season, though he has not been placed on injured reserve.

Asked if he had a timeframe for returning to practice, the two-time Pro Bowl guard said "I don't know."

Andrews, who recently divulged that he has become a pescatarian, certainly is not bulking up while recovering. He said Friday he currently weighs 320. In fact, Andrews might be getting a little too thin.

Much of the talk around the Eagles this week concerns how the 4-9 Browns really aren't that bad -- they are the only team, other than the Birds, to beat the Giants. Obviously, a concerted effort is being made to avoid a letdown after last Sunday's huge victory. The biggest reason why that shouldn't happen is that the Eagles know they can't afford one; even if they win all three of their remaining games, they aren't totally assured of a playoff berth. A loss to the least-imposing fore remaining on their schedule would be a disaster.
