Westbrook, Gocong Out Vs. Cowboys

Running back Brian Westbrook is among one of eight Eagles on the inactive list and he will not play against the Dallas Cowboys while still recovering from concussion-related symptoms. Rookie LeSean McCoy will start in his place.

The Eagles released a statement from head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder regarding Westbrook:

"On Friday afternoon Brian began experiencing symptoms of a mild headache. From that point forward, we had Brian re-evaluated by (team internist) Dr. Gary Dorshimer and we put him through extensive testing. Even though those tests were determined to be negative, we all thought it would be in the best interests of Brian and the team that he should be deactivated for tonight's game. We will continue to evaluate Brian this week"

Starting linebacker Chris Gocong is also out with hamstring and quad injuries. He will be replaced by rookie seventh-round pick Moise Fokou.

The other inactives are: Wide receiver Kevin Curtis (knee), offensive lineman Mike McGlynn, running back P.J. Hill, offensive lineman Max Jean-Gilles, defensive end Victor Abiamiri (knee) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (quad).

The Eagles will have three quarterback active.

UPDATE: The Cowboys have announced their inactives: quarterback Stephen McGee (third qb), cornerback Allen Rossum, safety Michael Hamlin, linebacker Steve Octavien, linebacker Jason Williams, guard Montrae Holland, center Duke Preston and offensive lineman Pat McQuistan. *
