Report: Westbrook not expected to play

Brian Westbrook is not expected to return to the Eagles' lineup today, two league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Westbrook was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report and was held out of practice, but Andy Reid made it sound like he was just being cautious.

"I held Brian Westbrook out today," Reid said Friday. "He has had two hard days of work and really the young kid hasn’t gotten a ton of reps so like I’ve done on other Fridays I kept Brian out and limited."

If Westbrook can't go, it will be LeSean McCoy and Leonard Weaver carrying the load for the Eagles. McCoy carried 11 times for 82 yards last week against the Giants, including a 66-yard touchdown.

Weaver had eight carries for 75 yards and a 41-yard score.

The Cowboys' rush defense ranks 13th in the NFL (seventh in the NFC), allowing 105 yards per game.
