Three Key Eagles and Three Chiefs on Injury Report

The Philadelphia Eagles have placed three key players on their initial injury report for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The following players missed practice today:

QB Donovan McNabb (cracked ribs)

Did not play last week and is very questionable for Sunday.  "If he can function and not be in danger, keep himself out of danger and he can play, then he can," head coach Andy Reid said this morning.  Reid also said McNabb can throw right now just not with much velocity.

WR DeSean Jackson (groin strain)

Left in the second half of last week's game.  He went through the morning walk-through today.

RB Brian Westbrook (swollen ankle)

Reid feels good about his chances to play since the swelling in a sprained ankle suffered last Sunday has gone way down.

Other injuries: LG Todd Herremans (foot) and CB Dimitri Patterson (fractured hand) are both out indefinitely.

The Chiefs also have three players that were limited in practice today.

LG Brian Waters (leg)

He hurt his leg in last Sunday's game.  He missed a few plays but was back in the game.

TE Jake O'Connell

He's been injured on and off so this might be a precaution

LB Derrick Johnson (ankle?)

DJ had a minor ankle sprain that caused him to miss some time earlier but we're not exactly sure what this injury is.

QB Matt Cassel (knee)

Precautionary.  He'll play.

CB Brandon Flowers (shoulder)

See above.
