NFC injury report: Eagles resting veterans

The Eagles listed 10 players on their first injury report of the week on Wednesday, but only two — RB Brian Westbrook (knee) and OT Jon Runyan (knee) — were held out of practice.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that WR Jason Avant, who hyperextended his knee against the Giants, should be ready to play. Pro Bowl OG Shawn Andrews, who is working his way back from a back injury that has kept him out since Week 2 of the regular season, is getting more work in practice but isn’t likely to dress against the Cardinals.

“They seem high-spirited right now,” Reid said. “They came in and took care of business the last couple of days in the training room. Everyone is banged up. Everyone that is still playing has a sore body. It’s nothing different than what the Cardinals are going through or the Steelers or the Ravens. But the mind takes over, and they’re all very excited to be in this position.”

Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin was able to take part in a limited portion of practice Wednesday as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Boldin, who was held out of the divisional round against Carolina, has said he will play Sunday. DE Travis LaBoy, who returned to play against the Panthers after missing nearly a month, was also limited.
