Eagles' Mayberry likely out one game
PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles guard Jermane Mayberry
isn't expected to play against the New York Jets on Sunday because
of a strained elbow.
Mayberry left Sunday's 14-10 victory over the New York Giants in
the third quarter after aggravating the injury. He originally was
hurt on Sept. 28 against Buffalo, reinjured the elbow the following
week against Washington and didn't play against Dallas last week.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Mayberry "most likely" will be out
this week. All-Pro safety Brian Dawkins (foot) also is out. He
hasn't played since he was hurt in the season opener.
Quarterback Donovan McNabb still is bothered by a right thumb
injury, but that hasn't forced him to miss any action. Reid said he
might hold McNabb back in practice a little this week to allow the
injury to fully heal.
