Eagles All-Pro guard Shawn Andrews is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh with back spasms. Andrews was injured Monday night against Dallas.

"He’s out with back spasms and not recovering from it as fast as we would hope," coach Andy Reid said. "We’ll just see how he is here in the next couple of days."

Added Reid: "We just don’t know whether he’s going to be able to go or not go, and right now, he’s hurting so we just have to get that answered and then we’ll go from there."

If Andrews can't play, Max Jean-Gilles would again play right guard.

“We rotate Max in there with the starters every week, so he gets plenty of reps in there in case something were to come up with either guard," Reid said. "We feel very comfortable that he will step in and do a good job for us.”

Center Jamaal Jackson missed his third consecutive day of practice for a family-related personal reason, but is expected to play Sunday. 

"I’m not worried about Jamaal being there even though he missed a few reps here," Reid said. "It’s a similar enough defense that he won’t be completely lost. He and [offensive line coach] Juan [Castillo] have spent some time together  via the phone."

Wide receiver Reggie Brown is expected to return after missing the first two games because of a hamstring injury,

"Reggie looks like he’s feeling pretty good," Reid said. "We’ll give him some reps in there. We’ll just see how he does. He made it through practice fine the last few days, so we’ll give him an opportunity to play.”

As to whether Brown will start, Reid said: “We’re doing everything off of personnel groups right now, so I can’t tell you that. There’s a chance that he does. There’s a chance he doesn’t, depending on what we have done.”

All listed as probable for Sunday: safety Sean Considine (hand), fullback Tony Hunt (hamstring), defensive tackle Dan Klecko (hand) and defensive tackle Trevor Laws (quadricep).
