All-Pro running back Brian Westbrook is day-to-day with a strained ankle. It's an encouraging sign for a Philadelphia Eagles team that can't afford to lose its top offensive player.

Coach Andy Reid says an MRI revealed no damaged ligaments. He says Westbrook is still limping, but isn't using crutches anymore.

Westbrook injured his right ankle while hurdling a teammate on a 2-yard run on the first play of the second quarter of Sunday's 15-6 win over Pittsburgh. He walked to the locker room without help, but didn't return and left the stadium on crutches.

Quarterback Donovan McNabb, who missed five plays against the Steelers in the third quarter, has a bruised chest. McNabb, who also had an MRI exam, is expected to play against Chicago on Sunday night.
