EAGLES: andrews done for season

There was a lot of hope that Andrews would get back into game-ready shape for the regular season

There was a lot of hope that Andrews would get back into game-ready shape for the regular season

In order to accomodate quarterback Jeff Garcia into the lineup, the Eagles were forced to place offensive tackle Shawn Andrews on the season-ending injured reserve.

The Eagles attempted to trade wide receivers Hank Baskett and Reggie Brown, but were unsuccessful. The front office refused to cut either of the receivers, claiming that they were too valuable to release without a trade.

Andrews was a few practices away from starting against the Panthers last week. During practice, the two-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman tweaked his back. Back problems kept him out of the entire training camp and preseason.

Now that Andrews is out for the entire season, the Eagles are very thin at the offensive line. Todd Herremans is not expected to be back for a couple of weeks after having surgery on a stress fracture in his foot.

The Eagles are expected to make another roster change next week when Michael Vick returns to the lineup. I expect them to cut Baskett or Brown, even though they refused to cut them this time around. If I were to choose, I think that cutting Brown would be the most beneficial move for the Eagles. His contract is larger and he has been far less productive for the Eagles in recent history.
