Eagles/Bears Inactives: McNabb in, Westbrook, Smith out

The Eagles and Bears have announced their inactives for tonight's contest:

Eagles: DE Victor Abiamiri, G Shawn Andrews, WR Kevin Curtis, QB A.J. Feeley, G Mike McGlynn, DE Bryan Smith, TE L.J. Smith, RB Brian Westbrook

Bears: WR Earl Bennett, G Dan Buenning, QB Caleb Hanie, DT Tommie Harris, DB Craig Steltz, DT Matt Toeaina, OT Chris Williams

The Eagles are smart to rest Westbrook for this week and hope he is ready to go next week against the Redskins. Correll Buckhalter will start and should be adequate enough to do some damage against the Bears. Losing L.J. Smith isn't a big blow, Brent Celek is not as good in the passing game but he's a much better blocker. Donovan McNabb will suit up, as if there was any doubt that he would play against his hometown team. With all the injuries, Joe Mays finally gets his chance to see some action. We'll see how he does on special teams.

For the Bears, Devin Hester is playing and the Eagles will try to kick away from him at all times. There was some question as to whether WR Brandon Lloyd would suit up, but he's ready to go.

Enjoy the game, GO BIRDS!
