Eagles injury update

8/12/2009

Eagles starting right guard Todd Herremans joined a long list of Philadelphia Eagles out with an injury. Coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday that Herremans will not play Thursday in the Eagles preseason opener against the Patriots due to "a stress reaction" in his ankle, which has kept Herremans out of practice the last two days.

Also not playing Thursday night against the Patriots are offensive linemen Stacy Andrews (knee) and Shawn Andrews (back). The five projected opening day starters on the Eagles re-built offensive line have yet to take a single snap together in training camp.

Brian Westbrook, Kevin Kolb, Victor Abiamiri, Trevor Laws and Matt Schobel are also out. Wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Hank Baskett, who both missed some practice time recently with knee injuries, will play, Reid said.
