Westbrook in the lineup; Jordan in, Gaither out

The Eagles backed up their 'no tomorrow' talk in activating banged up running back Brian Westbrook, who didn't practice all of last week with ankle, knee and rib injuries.

And in a bid to effect more play-making on the other side of the ball, they started Akeem Jordan at weak side linebacker instead of Omar Gaither. Gaither has 2.5 sacks and one fumble recovery but just one sack in the last six games.

The Eagles deactivated the usual cast Sunday: Running backs Lorenzo Booker and Kyle Eckel; guards Shawn Andrews and Mike McGlynn; linebacker Joe Mays; defensive end Brian Smith; and tight end Matt Schobel.
