Eagles running back Brian Westbrook has been officially announced as inactive for Sunday night’s game.
Coach Andy Reid said earlier in the week that he expected Westbrook to play, but something changed Friday.
“On Friday afternoon Brian began experiencing symptoms of a mild
headache,” a statement from the Eagles read. “From that point forward, we had Brian re-evaluated by [team
internist] Dr. Gary Dorshimer and we put him through extensive testing.
Even though those tests were determined to be negative, we all thought
it would be in the best interests of Brian and the team that he should
be deactivated for tonight’s game. We will continue to evaluate Brian
Starting strongside linebacker Chris Gocong is also inactive, and will be joined by wide receiver Kevin Curtis, offensive lineman Mike McGlynn,
running back P.J. Hill, offensive lineman Max Jean-Gilles, defensive
end Victor Abiamiri and cornerback Dimitri Patterson.
The Cowboys had no surprises in their inactives. Out for Dallas: cornerback Allen Rossum, safety Michael Hamlin, linebacker Steve
Octavien, linebacker Jason Williams, guard Montrae Holland, center Duke
Preston and offensive lineman Pat McQuistan.
