Austin Close; Newman Still A Game-Day Decision

Injured Bird
Eagles starting wide receiver Reggie Brown hasn't played since the second preseason game because of a strained hamstring, and while he has returned to practice on a limited basis this week, the fourth-year player still is being listed as "questionable" for Monday night's game.

The Ike Factor
Hurricane Ike isn't expected to be a factor Monday night when the Cowboys meet Philadelphia at Texas Stadium (7:15 p.m. CDT), but he could alter the Cowboys practice plans here on Saturday.

Short Shots
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb owns a 4-3 record at Texas Stadium thanks to winning his last two starts here, in 2007 and in 2004, that memorable Monday night performance in the Eagles' 49-21 victory . . . Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo racked up his 11th 300-yard passing performance this past Sunday against the Browns, leaving him in second place all-time in franchise history, trailing only Troy Aikman (13) after just 27 regular-season starts . . . Guessing the Eagles remember Cowboys punt returner Adam "Pacman" Jones, who went 90 yards for a touchdown against them in 2006 while playing for the Titans.
