Andrews Expects To Play In Opener

Shawn Andrews didn't mix words when asked if he thinks he's going to be on the field come September 13th when the Eagles open their season against the Carolina Panthers.

"If I had to guess," Andrews said coyly, "I think I would say 'Hell Yeah.'"

Andrews described the progress his back has made over the past week or so when he visited a back specialist in California. The specialist gave him two shots for the pain and he has undergone acupuncture treatments that he says have helped enormously.

"I'm feeling really positive about it," Andrews said. "I'm just elated about the way I feel right now, and I think this (back)'s about to take off.

"I'm doing everything in my power, exhausting all means to get back. I am stoked about where I am right now."

Andrews said he was going to push himself today and he expects to be back on the practice field with his teammates soon.

"I think I'm getting to that point where I might be able to take on a bull rush or two," he said.
