Breaking: McNabb, Westbrook, & Curtis inactive for today's game

The Eagles have announced that Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook, & Kevin Curtis will all be inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. McNabb and Curtis were expected, but most reports suggested that Brian Westbrook would be able to  play. I have to wonder whether the wet conditions played a factor in Andy Reid's decision to shut Westbrook and his sore ankle down?

The absences of Curtis and Westbrook mean that rookies Jeremy Maclin and Lesean McCoy, the Eagles first and second round picks respectively, will get their first career starts.
