Notes: Eagles Getting Boost From 2nd-Round Pick

Westbrook In Training?
When asked how the Cowboys will account for Eagles running back Brian Westbrook, head coach Wade Phillips said his defensive players will locate where he is "before every play."

Practice Squad Moves
As expected, the Cowboys filled their two open practice squad spots by re-signing wide receiver Mike Jefferson and guard Ryan Gibbons.

Tigers Staying Put
Although Texas Stadium emerged as one of four alternate sites early this week, LSU officials announced that Saturday's home game will be played in Baton Rouge, La., as originally scheduled since Hurricane Ike has shifted its track toward the Texas Gulf Coast.

Short Shots
Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips confirmed that Cory Procter will start again at left guard in place of Kyle Kosier (hairline foot fracture) . . . Wide receiver Isaiah Stanback (shoulder) practiced fully again Wednesday after catching two passes for 24 yards in the season opener. Stanback is wearing a protective shoulder harness . . . Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has a career 10-5 record against the Cowboys.
