The biggest news out of Philadelphia Eagles practice Friday was the absence of CB Asante Samuel, who’s questionable with a hip injury, but there weren’t any other big surprises.
TE L.J. Smith (shoulder) and RB Brian Westbrook (knee, ankle) remain questionable for Sunday’s NFC Wild-Card Game against the Minnesota Vikings after both were limited in practice Friday. OT Jon Runyan (knee) also is questionable after missing the workout.
LB Stewart Bradley (rib, groin), who has started all 16 games this season for Philadelphia, is listed as probable, even though he was limited in practice Friday, one day after participating in the full workout.
After the Vikings received bad news about DE Ray Edwards, who will miss Sunday’s game because of a knee injury, they got some good news. WR Bernard Berrian, who leads the team with 964 receiving yards and has scored seven touchdowns, fully participated in Friday’s workout after two straight days of being limited by an ankle injury. He’s listed as probable for Sunday’s game.
Minnesota DT Pat Williams, who hasn’t played since Week 15 because of a shoulder injury, was limited in practice for the third consecutive day and is questionable for Sunday’s game. Vikings coach Brad Childress said Williams’ availability will be a game-time decision.
