Brian Westbrook got a portion of practice off Friday, but there’s no doubt he will be starting Philadelphia’s season opener.
Westbrook is one of eleven Eagles listed as probable on Philadelphia’s injury report and will start against the porous-looking Panthers rush defense.
As PFT mentioned earlier, guard Shawn Andrews is indeed out for the game. Right tackle Winston Justice will try to build on an encouraging preseason in his first start since Osi Umenyiora made him famous. (We’d say Osi “posterized” him, but there aren’t many posters of defensive ends. Unfair.)
Also out for the Eagles: guard/tackle Todd Herremans and backup linebacker Joe Mays. The rest of the team should be available.
