Westbrook probable, Andrews out for Sunday

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.

    Run left, screen pass right, just behind Peppers bull rush.
    Lets see if Justice can finally live up to his potential. He seems much more comfortable on the right side than the left (against Osi), but only Sunday will tell.

    Justice should have never been playing LT. Reid was stubborn for that. Very few can play both tackle position effectively.

    The Eagles are going to have a long and frustrating year. I would be surprised if they win more than 7 games. Andrews is done, the rest of the line is pretty beat up too.
    Did you know that the Gold Standard Philadelphia Eagles have gone 33-30-1 since their last Superbowl with four playoff games while the horrible Redskins who have not chance to even compete with the Eagles have gone 32-32 in the same time period with three playoff games? Hmm, makes you think Eagle fans, makes you think…

    Man reality check time Sunday. Philly is NOT as good as people think. An injured O-Line that was already bad in the run game as it is. The Panthers horrible run defense won’t matter.

    It’s actually 5 playoff games and a 3-2 record.
    Washington is 1-2.
    But you’ve already made up your mind on how you feel so why bother trying to fix your errors.

    @ Cleg
    It does make me think. It makes me think you weren’t a math major.

    Come on haters and hate on the Eagles!
    If we try to defend ourselves Florio just bans us anyway.
