CB Samuel Practices; Shawn Andrews Update

Cornerback Asante Samuel returned to practice Friday and head coach Andy Reid expects to have him for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Samuel, along with linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, are both officially listed as questionable.

Trotter developed some knee inflammation Thursday night and did not participate in Friday's practice, which was inside on the turf.

Ruled out for the Redskins game are wide receiver Kevin Curtis, running back Brian Westbrook and linebacker Akeem Jordan.

Reid said Westbrook "did ok" with his exercises this week, while Jordan could be back for next week's game in Atlanta.

Injured offensive lineman Shawn Andrews could face a second surgery on his ailing back. Andrews has been out in California engaged in extensive rehab the last two months.

"He just hasn't made progress with the rehab, and it's not from a lack of effort," Reid said.

Andrews will meet with a specialist in Dallas to get what Reid termed was a "third opinion" on his back.

"Backs are sensitive things," Reid said. "If he needs to have another surgery, then he'll have another surgery."

Reid also noted that there is no connection between Andrews' situation and the contract extension signed earlier this week by right tackle Winston Justice.

On Friday's Eagles Live!, Adam Caplan of Sirius NFL Radio reported that Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall will not play Sunday due to a knee injury.
