Eagles linebacker Takeo Spikes suffered a torn rotator cuff during Sunday's 10-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys, Andy Reid said today during a press conference.
Reid said it was too soon to determine whether or not Spikes will be available for Sunday's game at New Orleans.
"We'll see how he does, if he can manage it or not," Reid said. "We'll see how he's able to handle that."
Reid also campaigned for running back Brian Westbrook to be named to the Pro Bowl team, which will be announced tomorrow.
"I have a hard time believing anybody is the league is doing it better [than Westbrook]," Reid said.
Westbrook, who has never been selected to the Pro Bowl team, has accounted for 40 percent of the Eagles offense this season. He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 1,896 and is second in the NFC in rushing with 1,191 yards. He is tied for fourth in the NFC in receptions with 83 catches.
Reid also dismissed a report by Pam Oliver, a Fox television sideline reporter, that quarterback Donovan McNabb gave her the impression that he would not be with the Eagles next season.
"I'm so tired of talking about it," Reid said. "I've answered it and answered it and answered it. I really am tired of talking about. I can't tell you any more than I already have."
