With Hank Baskett (knee) apparently unlikely to play, and Kevin Curtis (calf) also hobbled, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Thursday that Reggie Brown will be dusted off and used in Sunday's game at Washington -- perhaps as a starter.
Brown, a starter going into the season, has been inactive the past two games and hasn't caught a pass since the Nov. 16 tie at Cincinnati. He said he doesn't know what sort of role he might expect.
"Play ball," he said. "Hopefully, try to contribute to the cause around here."
Asked what he thought he had to show the coaches, Brown said: "Show 'em what? To get back on the field? Before I got hurt (a groin injury in practice the week after the Oct. 5 Washington game) I came back out to be the leading receiver in two games," the Chicago and Washington losses, in which Brown caught six and four passes, respectively. "If that's not enough to show 'em ... I can't do anything more than I'm already doing. It's their decision whether or not to play me. It's just my decision whether or not to go out there and do my best and try to help this team make ti to the playoffs."
