Notes From The ‘Nest:
DE Darren Howard (groin and knee) didn't practice Thursday and still is listed as questionable, but defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said he expected Howard to play.
LB Omar Gaither will make his second start at "WILL" Sunday against
Washington in place of struggling Matt McCoy. McCoy has been bothered by a shoulder sprain.
CB Rod Hood practiced Thursday but still is listed as questionable for Sunday with a sore hamstring. He will try to play.
LB Shawn Barber, who has missed the past two games with a knee sprain, practiced Thursday and was upgraded to probable for Sunday's game. His absence in the team's nickel package has been felt.
RB Brian Westbrook hasn't had any major problems with his sore toe in practice and will play Sunday against Washington. Whether the Eagles will limit his touches remains to be seen.
