Shawn Andrews’ back injury remains a mystery.

Andrews has not played since suffering the injury in the Week 2 loss to Dallas and on Monday was scheduled to see Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles. Watkins, the fourth back specialist to examine Andrews, operated on Tra Thomas’ back in 2005.

“We just want to make sure that we get a clear read on this thing and see if we can’t find a solution,” coach Andy Reid said Monday.

“He’s still hurting. He’s not making a lot of progress.”

Asked whether it’s possible Andrews would be out the rest of the season, Reid said he didn’t know.

“We’ll see what this guy here says,” Reid said. “He’s worked on Tra. We’ll see how it works out. Rick and I are going to try and exhaust every means to see what the problem is.”

Reid said the first three back specialists were able to diagnose the problem.

“They did,” Reid said. “It wasn’t getting better like we kind of anticipated.”

Andrews’ replacement, Max Jean-Gilles suffered a shoulder sprain in Sunday’s win over San Francisco but returned to the game.

Whether Andrews will be able to return following the bye week is uncertain, but Reid said the Pro Bowl guard is the only player who may not be ready for the Eagles’ next game, Oct. 26 at home against Atlanta.

Reid said running back Brian Westbrook (broken ribs), receivers Kevin Curtis (hernia) and Reggie Brown (groin), cornerback Lito Sheppard (hamstring), Tra Thomas (foot strain) and safety J.R. Reed (ankle/hamstring) should be available to play against the Falcons.

The Eagles, 4-6 under Reid in the game before the bye week and 9-0 in the game after, have off until next Monday.

And the Packers were Undefeated at home in Playoff games before we came to Town.

Bottom line, Westbrook HAS to be on the Bench for us to win this game. If he Plays, Our LB's and DB's have to tackle at the waist and get those ribs nice and sore.

Then again, trying to make Philly one dimentional is a bad Idea. Mcnabb could pick our secondary apart if we totally shut down thier run.

This will be by far the toughest game to date for this Team. If anyone could show Ryan some looks he's never seen it's Johnson and his Blitz from anywhere scheme.

i agree ..if we dont put any pressure on Mcnabb either we will be in for a long day

toughest game this year... at least the majority of our young players were not around when we lost those 2 playoff games at philly... we might just go there and win like we did in GB... tough game still and I won´t complain if we lose as long as we are competitive through four quarters

Think Desean Jackson can slip on a banana peel and fall between now and next saturday? hopefully he hurts his baby toe or something that will make him less effective or only causing him to miss the Falcons game.

Hester had his way with us.. I shake a the thought of what Jackson will do.

It will be a tough game, hopefully we win. Andy Reid has made some real "WTF" calls in some games lately. Here's to many of those calls next Sunday!

Man I hate to play up there. Bad things happen to us in Philly. :(

Why can't Westbrook just sit out one more game for us please Andy?

Another very tough game for our team. At least we are 100% healthy ourselves, and have some momentum. I just hope we don't get too relaxed in our bye week, but I am sure Coach Smith will have our guys ready to play.

Matt Ryan is undefeated in Philly.

We can do it, Westbrook wont be 100% and aslong as they dont get a big name receiver in the trades today then we wont have to worry about any super tall receivers. We just need to do the same we have done the last 2 weeks, 0 sacks. And maybe foxworth would be ready to start or atleast take some of the starting reps.

westbrook has broken ribs. even if he does play, one good hit and he may be done for the game. i have played rb with cracked ribs and it aint fun. now mind you i am about westbrook size but no where near as fast and elusive as he is.

I am going to the game with my eagle fan friends. i think i will be the lone falcon in the building.

I think we may lose this one though. this will be similar to the TB game than it is to the Chicago game. this will be another test for Matt's evolution. Jim Johnson will dial up some blitz packages for you. you see what he did to O'sullivan this weekend to put the game away. the zone blitzing mixing in.

Westbrook is a big factor, but the Eagles are most successful when they use him in formations where a pass gets dumped off in the backfield and he has two or three linemen in front of him for blocking (you have to excuse me...the name of the play I for some reason can't remember). If we can control the line of scrimmage by containing Westbrook on those type of plays because he gets big yards on them, the rest will handle itself and we can put ourselves in position to win the game. McNabb is a great QB and will have some success passing, but all we have to do is eliminate those big plays to Westbrook.

If we are going to win the game though I would want it to be with PHI at full strength. We have some tough upcoming divisional games so we might as well get some practice against a dangerous offense, because the Saints sure won't be an easy task when Colston gets back
