Eagles/Rams Week One Injury Report: Philly even thinner at receiver

Here is the injury report for the Eagles heading into their Week One contest with the Rams:

Out: Victor Abiamiri, DE (Wrist), Kevin Curtis, WR (Hernia)
Doubtful: Reggie Brown, WR (Hamstring)
Probable: Lorenzo Booker, RB (Hip), Chris Clemons, DE (Calf), Sean Considine, S (Hand), Brian Dawkins, S (Ankle)

The biggest news here is that Reggie Brown doesn't look likely to play. That means the Eagles will be lining up on Sunday without their two best receivers, leaving DeSean Jackson, Hank Baskett, Jason Avant and Greg Lewis as their only options. It's sad that the best healthy receiver the Eagles have is a rookie. Expect to see a lot of Brian Westbrook lined up as a wideout.

Expect all of the Probable players to play, not that anyone would really miss Sean Considine. Considering how poor he looked this preseason, Chris Clemons might not suit up even if he is healthy enough to play.

The Rams don't have any significant injuries:

Out: Donnie Avery, WR (Knee)
Probable: Fakhir Brown, CB (Probable), Brian Leonard, RB (Shoulder), Brett Romberg, C (Hand)
