KEYS TO THE GAME
Eagles: RG Shawn Andrews (back) could miss his second straight game; WR Kevin Curtis (sports hernia) could return by next week; TE L.J. Smith (back) is uncertain; Westbrook (ankle) will be a game-time decision.
Eagles: Westbrook seems unlikely to play Sunday against Chicago. He did not practice again Thursday because of his ankle strain. The Eagles probably will hold him out in the hope that he'll be ready for next week's important division game against Washington. ... McNabb didn't practice again because of an upper chest contusion suffered in last week's game, but he is expected to play Sunday against Chicago. ... Curtis practiced lightly for the second straight day. Curtis, who is recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia, won't play this week but could play next week against Washington. ... Smith didn't practice again Thursday. Smith hurt his back Sunday diving for a ball in the end zone. He's had back problems before, though the Eagles said nothing is structurally wrong with his back. He's questionable for Sunday. ... Andrews didn't practice again Thursday. He missed last week's game with a lower back injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.
