LB Gocong Doubtful Vs. Cowboys

Starting linebacker Chris Gocong is listed as doubtful after missing practice for the third straight day with injuries to his quad and hamstring according to head coach Andy Reid.

In other injury news, running back Brian Westbrook was held out of practice on Friday after a strong two days of practice by Reid, but he is expected to play and contribute in a significant manner on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis is the only player listed as out.

Rookie seventh-round pick Moise Fokou will start as the strongside linebacker if Gocong is unable to go. Coach Reid said he had plenty of confidence in Fokou to get the job done.

"He's worked hard," Reid said of Fokou. "Even when Chris was healthy, he worked in there during practice."

Reid is looking forward to playing in front of a raucous Philadelphia crowd on national television Sunday night.

"It should be a great atmosphere," he said. "I know our fans will be out of their minds by Sunday night."
