Westy 'Questionable,' Birds Talk Series

Brian Westbrook watched Friday's practice and he remains a gametime decision for Sunday's meeting with the Giants, Eagles coach Andy Reid said. He said Westbrook is listed as "questionable."

"Brian had another (neurological) test today; we're waiting on the results," Reid said. Reid added that the light exercise Westbrook was scheduled for today would not occur until the results came inBWest.

Westbrook hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion in the first quarter of Monday night's victory at Washington. Reid said the pregame workout Sunday would enough of a test of readiness, should Westbrook be cleared by doctors. But that seems an unlikely scenario.

Reid praised Phils manager Charlie Manuel and wished the best for the defending champs as they bring the World Series here for Game 3 tomorrow and Game 4 Sunday.

"He's got some tough guys playing for him," Reid said.

Donovan McNabb repeated his prediction of a 6-game Phils victory. He said Cole Hamels would pitch well tomorrow, and "Howard, Werth and Ibanez will hit homers."

Then McNabb paused to consider the reaction of some elements of the Eagles' fan base. "Why is he focusing on baseball?" McNabb asked, in a shrill falsetto."He needs to be focusing on the Giants!"

Less eager to volunteer his thoughts was rookie running back LeSean McCoy, raised a Yankees fan in Harrisburg.

Other Friday nuggets:

*Free safety Macho Harris (ankle) hasn't practiced and is questionable for Sunday. Sean Jones seems likely to start for Harris.

*As stated earlier, DE Victor Abiamiri (knee), WR Kevin Curtis (knee), and corner Dimitri Patterson (quad) are listed as "out."

*Reid said DE Chris Clemons missed practice Friday with an illness, but on the injury report, Clemons was listed as questionable with an elbow injury.

*WR DeSean Jackson (foot) practiced again and is listed as probable.
