Andy Reid opened his press conference Wednesday morning explaining that no Eagle had been ruled out for Sunday's game with the 49ers.
Not running back Brian Westbrook, coming back from multiple concussions, and not rookie WR Jeremy Maclin, who tore a tendon in his foot.
But Maclin and tight end Brent Celek, who wrenched his back coming to attention at a team meeting, weren't  slated to practice Wednesday afternoon.
For now Westbrook will practice with the scout team, the head coach finessing around the logjam his presence would compete in an already crowded backfield with LeSean McCoy, Leonard Weaver and Eldra Buckley. The Eagles have won four straight games with those players.
"He literally couldn't do anything for a couple of weeks so you just can't throw him back in," Reid said of Westbrok. "He's still taking the concussion tests. He's better but not all the way completely cleared there."
Reid said Celek would play despite the sore back.
