Reid’s remarks on matchup with Bears

leave a comment »

Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid, a Glendale Community College graduate, addressed the media on Friday on the topic of his team’s interdivisional game against the Chicago Bears Sunday at 5:20 PDT, an important matchup for the Eagles (5-4), who are tied for second in the NFC North with the New York Giants and one game behind the Dallas Cowboys.

“Looking forward to playing the Chicago Bears, the guys had a good week of practice, preparation and I know the coaches and players are ready for this game,” Reid said in comments published on the team’s official website. “We know what kind of team we are playing, excellent football team, so we prepared ourselves that way.”

One of the biggest obstacles facing the Eagles is the series of ongoing complications star running back Brian Westbrook is experiencing from concussions sustained in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins and again last week against the San Diego Chargers. On Friday, the Eagles confirmed that Westbrook will be sidelined for at least the next three weeks.

“I think the doctors want to see how he does after two weeks, what kind of symptoms he has and then they’ll just go back through and evaluate him after that, two to three weeks,” Reid told philadelphiaeagles.com. “We’ll just see how he feels after that.”
