The Eagles listed Sheldon Brown as questionable for Sunday night's game at Chicago, but the cornerback sounded fairly positive that he'll be able to continue his consecutive games-played streak.

"I have two days and the good thing about it is it's Sunday night, so I have all day to rehab, too," Brown said.

Brown was a limited participant in practice today, as he's been all week. There's a chance he could be used only sparingly against the Bears, splitting time with Dimitri Patterson, who would be his replacement if Brown couldn't. Ramzee Robinson could also figure into the mix.

Brown hasn't missed a game in the NFL. That's 133 straight. He suffered a hamstring strain during the Chargers game last week.

 Brian Westbrook, meanwhile, is out for the Bears game as he recovers from a concussion. Eagles coach Andy Reid confirmed that Westbrook would also out for next week's game against the Redskins and likely the game following at Atlanta.

"I think the doctors want to see how he does after two weeks, what kind of symptoms he has," Reid said. "And then they'll just go back through and evaluate him after that, two to three weeks. We'll just see how he feels after that."

The following players are also out for the Bears game: LB Akeem Jordan (knee), S Quintin Demps (ankle) and WR Kevin Curtis (knee).
