Eagles Banged Up

No Westbrook, Dawkins, Lito, Tra Thomas, L.J. Smith

Safety Brian Dawkins and running back Brian Westbrook were both inactive for Sunday night's game against the Giants. Dawkins missed his second consecutive game after suffering a neck stinger in Philadelphia's Week 2 loss to Washington. Westbrook strained an abdominal in the third quarter of the Eagles' win over Detroit in Week 3 and was unable to practice in the week leading up the the game with New York. Correll Buckhalter got the start in his abscnce.

Three other starters, cornerback Lito Sheppard (knee), left tackle William Thomas (knee), and tight end L.J. Smith (groin), were also inactive with injuries. Quarterback Kevn Kolb, defensive tackle Kimo von Oelhoffen and defensive end Victor Abiamiri rounded out the inactive list for the Eagles.


Not good Eagles fans. This might be too many injuries to overcome.
