Andrews, Westbrook: Aches and pains

Eagles right tackle Shawn Andrews was not at practice today indoors at the novacare complex. It is the second consecutive day that andrews has not taken part because of his lingering back problems.

Andrews, Westbrook: Aches and pains


Shawn Andrews reinjured his balky back in Wednesday's practice. He reported to work Thursday and said his back hurt again. It cost him the last 14 games of last season, almost all of this preseason and will keep him out of at least Sunday's opener at Carolina.

If surging replacement Winston Justice plays well in Andrews absence Andrews could be watching whenever he finally is healthy, said head coach Andy Ried; it is Justice's job to win. Andrews declined to comment on his most recent setback.

Reid also said Jon Runyan's workout yesterday was to gauge Runyan's progess after offseason knee surgery. Reid offered no evaluation of Runyan, who is a free agent. Runyan played right tackle for the Eagles, where Andrews and Justice now play. Runyan's workout and Andrews' setback were coincidental, Reid insisted.

Running back brian westbrook left practice early, presumably because his knee would be better served not working out for the full time on the harder indoor surface.
