Justice's MRI Checks Out OK

Head coach Andy Reid said on Friday that the MRI on Winston Justice's knee revealed that the starting right offensive tackle has a hyperextended knee, but structurally it's OK. Justice suffered the injury on LeSean McCoy's 40-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter. Justice was replaced in the lineup by King Dunlap.

As far as Justice's status, Reid only said that if the team had to practice today he would not be available. The Eagles, fortunately, are off until next Wednesday.

Defensive starters Juqua Parker (hip) and Asante Samuel (knee) "are making progress" and "should be available to go" when the team reconvenes next week for practice.

Reid gave his players the added time off after the 34-24 win over the Houston Texans.

"It was a good team win all the way around," Reid said.
