A No-Go For Westbrook

CHICAGO -- Brian Westbrook did not suit up Sunday night as the Eagles took on the Bears at Soldier Field because of the ankle injury suffered the previous week against the Steelers.

Westbrook worked out on the field and left at around 5:01 PM local time. At that point, he met with trainers and team personnel and the decision was made to rest Westbrook.

Correll Buckhalter started in Westbrook's stead. Also out for the Eagles due to injuries were tight end L.J. Smith (back), guard Shawn Andrews (back), wide receiver Kevin Curtis (sports hernia) and defensive end Victor Abiamiri (wrist). Max Jean-Gilles started at right guard for Andrews and Brent Celek was in at tight end for Smith.

A.J. Feeley was the third quarterback. Also inactive for the Eagles were defensive end Bryan Smith and guard Mike McGlynn.

Injuries also impacted the Chicago Bears. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris say out Sunday's game with a knee injury. On the flip side, returner/receiver Devin Hester played after missing last week's game with a rib injury. The other inactives for the Bears included: quarterback Caleb Hanie, safety Craig Steltz, cornerback Marcus Hamilton, guard Dan Buenning, tackle Chris Williams, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and wide receiver Earl Bennett.
