THE LENGTHY INJURY LIST

0 comments

As the Eagles continued to prepare for what amounts to a must-win game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, the list of walking wounded remained long.

Defensive end Juqua Parker, hampered by a knee injury, missed practice for the second straight day, but said afterward that he does expect to play. Darren Howard ran with the first-team defense in Parker's absence.

The status for wide receiver Reggie Brown, however, is not as certain. Brown, who missed the first two games with a hamstring injury, left practice Wednesday with a groin injury and did not practice today. Brown has caught a team-high 10 passes for 163 yards in the Eagles' last two games and had 106 receiving yards in a game at San Francisco two seasons ago.

"He is better than he was yesterday," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said before practice.

It appears unlikely that running back Brian Westbrook will play with fractured ribs. Westbrook, who also is recovering from a strained right ankle, sat out of practice for the second straight day. Unlike two weeks ago, Westbrook has not even been in attendance at practice this week.

Guard Shawn Andrews (back) will miss his fourth straight game.

The Eagles will practice tomorrow at the NovaCare Complex, then fly to San Francisco in the early afternoon. The team typically travels on Saturday for a Sunday game unless the game is on the West Coast.
