Friday Key For RB Westbrook

Running back Brian Westbrook sat out practice for a second straight day on Thursday. There was no further update on his condition or status for Sunday's game.

As of Wednesday, Westbrook was still feeling the effects of a concussion he suffered in the early stages of Monday night's win over Washington.

Westbrook has played without practicing in the past, but in this case, coaches and medical staff would like to see him on the practice field first, according to head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder.

So Friday figures to be a key day. Head coach Andy Reid will update Westbrook's status during his post-practice press conference which can be heard here on Eagles Live! beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Like Westbrook, both free safety Macho Harris (ankle) and special teamer Dimitri Patterson (quad/hand) practice for a second consecutive day.

However, defensive end Darren Howard (ankle/calf) and receiver DeSean Jackson (foot) were full-go in Thursday's workout.

For the Giants, starting right tackle Kareem McKenzie was a full participant in Thursday's workout after being limited Wednesday with a groin injury. Linebacker Antonio Pierce (ankle) was limited Thursday after sitting out Wednesday, while running back Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle/foot) missed a second straight day of practice.
