Head Coach Andy Reid

Injury Report: "The two players that are out are (WR) Kevin Curtis and (LB) Akeem Jordan. (T) Jason Peters is questionable, did not practice today with an ankle sprain. We'll just see how he does here. He's making progress. We'll just see how he does here in the next couple days. If it works out okay with the flight and the practice tomorrow there's a chance he still plays. Everybody else practiced. (S Quintin) Demps was out there, he was the one that didn't practice yesterday. He was out there and he practiced and did a nice job."

Opening Remarks: "We look forward to the challenge of playing the San Diego Chargers who we know are on three-game win streak and a good football team, well deserving of all that. We have our flight today and our guys have had a good week of practice. We need to continue to stay focused as we travel and go out and play a good football game."

On why Peters didn't practice today: "If he could have practiced we would have had him out there. He's still tender so he didn't practice today."

On which players he is planning on playing on the offensive line Sunday: "I don't know that yet. I'm still waiting to see on Jason and see what happens there. We do have some flexibility along with (G) Max (Jean-Gilles) feeling better. We should be in good shape."

On how the Chargers 3-4 defense is similar to Dallas': "It's very similar. (Chargers defensive coordinator) Ron (Rivera) has a few wrinkles in there, different blitzes and stunts in there, but it is very similar to what we just saw. Very good personnel there, their outside linebackers are good and (DE Luis) Castillo, he's a very good player. Their linebackers are good. They're getting a linebacker back off of being injured; he's a good player. They have a good front side there."

On whether the Chargers defense is similar to Dallas' because Wade Phillips was the defensive coordinator in San Diego: "There still is some carry over from what Wade was doing. The difference is probably more in the nickel package than the base package. The base is similar to what Wade's doing."

On who will start if Peters cannot play: "We'll just see how it works out. I haven't made that decision yet."

On who will be starting Jordan's absence: "We have a variety of things we can do there. We have a bunch of different combinations that we're working on and we'll just play it how we see it once we get out there as far as personnel goes."

On whether RB Brian Westbrook will have a normal amount of touches Sunday: "He'll continue to rotate and we'll just see how he does. I'm not going to just throw him in for the whole game. (RB) LeSean (McCoy) has done a nice job when he's been called on, so that gives us some flexibility."

On what Westbrook is listed as: "Playing. Probable."

On how Westbrook has looked the past couple days: "He seems to have been moving around pretty good."

On whether Westbrook looks rusty: "He looked like he had a little bounce in his step here the last couple of days. I (have been) hesitant to put him on the turf for the (past two days), we rotated a little bit today. He took a lot of reps yesterday and he had a lot of bounce and he came out feeling good and no problems."

On Westbrook's head: "That's fine."

On what would happen if Westbrook experience headaches between now and the game: "I'd look at it. We'll have our doctors with us, so if he has a headache I want to know why."

On whether Demps will be doing kickoff returns: "If Quintin goes he'll be the kickoff man, then (WR) Jeremy (Maclin), and (S) Macho (Harris) is also returning a little bit."
