Curtis closer to return for Eagles

One of the most-anticipated daily injury reports comes out of Philadelphia, where the Eagles have a handful of starters and key players battling injuries. The team just released its Thursday report, which contained few surprises.

RB Brian Westbrook, DE Jaqua Parker and LG Shawn Andrews were held out for the second straight day, while QB Donovan McNabb and TE L.J. Smith participated in full practice.

Starting WR Reggie Brown sat out practice on Thursday after he was limited on Wednesday, although offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg labled him as “day to day” and said Brown was feeling better. A sliver of good news could be that WR Kevin Curtis is closer to taking the field for the first time this season. Curtis practiced for the second striaght day as he continues his comeback from a groin injury that has sidlined him since training camp.

“Kevin is working at a high level,” said Mornhinweg. “He is close. He is feeling pretty good. He felt pretty good yesterday; he is feeling pretty good today. He is pretty close. He is a day-to-day situation.”
