Gocong doubtful; Westbrook misses practice but ready

Linebacker Chris Gocong is listed as doubtful after missing his third consecutive day of practice with quadriceps and hamstring injuries suffered against the Giants.

Rookie Moise Fokou would start in his place.

“He’ll be ready,” coach Andy Reid said of Fokou. “He’s worked hard at that. Even when Chris was healthy, he took a couple of reps in practice and stayed on top of things.”

Brian Westbrook did not practice today after practicing the last two days, but coach Andy Reid was unconcerned. He is listed as questionable. Westbrook has not played since a concussion suffered against Washington.

" He has had two hard days of work and really the young kid (LeSean McCoy) hasn’t gotten a ton of reps so like I’ve done on other Fridays I kept Brian out and limited," said Reid, who added that Westbrook has not had any headaches.

As for Westbrook’s role against Dallas, Reid said, “I think he can contribute a bunch here. We’ve been rotating (Westbrook and LeSean McCoy), so that’s what we will continue to do.”

Defensive linemen Victor Abiamiri and Brodrick Bunkley returned to practice after being limited Thursday with knee issues. Reid said he is confident that Bunkley and Chris Clemons, who has been hampered by a shoulder and elbow injury, will play.

Abiamiri is listed as doubtful, Bunkley as questionable and Clemons as probable.

“Abiamiri is further away than the other two,” Reid said.

Nick Cole is expected to start at right guard. 

Safety Macho Harris (ankle) is also listed as questionable.
