Eagles running back Brian Westbrook missed his second straight day of practice and is listed as questionable for this Sunday's game against Miami. If Westbrook is unable to go, who will start in his place?

PHILADELPHIA -- Halfback Brian Westbrook missed practice for the second straight day with a knee injury and is questionable for the Eagles' game against Miami on Sunday.

"I think he'll be ready to go," coach Andy Reid said Friday. "It's not bad. There's a little swelling."

Westbrook missed one game earlier this season with an abdominal injury and often plays despite missing practice. He's eighth in the NFL with 701 yards rushing and second among running backs and ninth overall with 54 catches for 518 yards. He has nine touchdowns combined, including three in a 33-25 win at Washington last Sunday.

Reid said Westbrook noticed some swelling in his knee after lifting weights following Wednesday's practice. He was held out of practice the next two days because the team practiced indoors on an artificial surface.

If Westbrook doesn't play, Correll Buckhalter would start.
