Wide receiver Reggie Brown was limited in practice because of his hamstring injury for the second straight day as the Eagles worked out on Friday to prepare for their Monday night showdown in Dallas. Brown is listed as questionable for the NFC East matchup.
"I didn't do too much. I'm just trying to take it easy," Brown said after practice. "I'm working my way through it. I'm not trying to rush myself and have any setbacks right now."
Brown has not played since the Eagles' second preseason game against Carolina. Brown suffered the injury on the first play of the game. Last week against St. Louis, DeSean Jackson started at Brown's flanker spot. Even though Brown was limited in practice this week, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is more optimistic than last week that Brown could play.

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis (sports hernia) and defensive end Victor Abiamiri (wrist) will not play against Dallas. Neither participated in Friday's practice.
Defensive tackle Dan Klecko (hand) was limited in Friday's practice, but he is listed as probable for Monday night. Safety Sean Considine (hand) had full participation and, like Klecko, is probable.
For the Cowboys, get ready for the bruising style of running back Marion Barber. Despite the fact that he exited last week's win over Cleveland early due to a rib injury, he had full participation in practice all-week long and is probable for Monday night's game. Also probable is wide receiver Isaiah Stanback (shoulder).
However, there are three potentially key players whose status for Monday night is up in the air. Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman, who was inactive against the Browns last week, is questionable with a groin injury. Outside linebacker Anthony Spencer is also questionable with a knee injury. Wide receiver Miles Austin, like Spencer, has a knee injury and, too, is questionable. All three had limited participation in Friday's workout.
The Cowboys will definitely be without the services of starting guard Kyle Kosier (foot) and wide receiver Sam Hurd (ankle).
*McNABB EARNS FEDEX AIR HONOR
Quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Michael Turner of the Atlanta Falcons are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on September 4-8.
McNabb threw for 361 yards and three touchdowns while completing 21 of 33 passes in the Eagles' 38–3 win over the St. Louis Rams.
Turner ran for 220 yards on 22 carries and scored two touchdowns in the Falcons' 34-21 win over the Detroit Lions. Turner's 220 yards broke the Falcons' record for rushing yards in a single game.
McNabb and Turner were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Drew Brees of the Saints and Jay Cutler of the Broncos, and running backs Matt Forte of the Bears and Willie Parker of the Steelers.
Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, FedEx is making a $1,000 donation in the winning players' names to the local Safe Kids USA coalitions in Philadelphia and Atlanta to support pedestrian safety efforts.
Safe Kids USA is a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children. This season, FedEx plans to surpass the $1 million mark in terms of charity donations they have made to deliver safe kids through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Player of the Week Awards program.
