Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb returned to practice Friday, but the Eagles could be without running back Brian Westbrook on Sunday at Chicago against the Bears.

McNabb was a full participant in that practice after sitting out all week because a chest bruise that he sustained during a 15-6 victory Sunday over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is questionable for the Bears game.

"During the practice, he felt good," Coach Andy Reid said.

Eagles guard Shawn Andrews and tight end L.J. Smith, are listed as doubtful. Westbrook has sat out practice all week with an ankle injury but plans to be ready to play.
