After missing most of last season due to injury, right tackle Shawn Andrews will sit out the season opener with a sore back.
Andrews is listed as out on the team’s injury report, meaning fourth-year backup Winston Justice will start for the Eagles when they take on the Carolina Panthers. Winston’s only start came in 2007 against the New York Giants, when the Eagles allowed the Giants to tie an NFL-record with 12 sacks of QB Donovan McNabb. Justice was primarily responsible for blocking DE Osi Umenyiora, who registered six sacks in that game.
Eagles starting left guard Todd Herremans (foot) is also out, while running back Brian Westbrook practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as probable.
