NFL.com wire reports
PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 28, 2005) -- Pro Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard could miss the Philadelphia Eagles' game at Denver after injuring his knee in practice.
Sheppard was hurt when he collided with wide receiver Greg Lewis during practice. He's listed as questionable for the game Sunday against the Broncos.
"He is making progress," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "He made a lot of progress from yesterday [Thursday] and we will see how he feels."
If Sheppard can't go, nickelback Roderick Hood would start in his place.
Sheppard, a first-round pick in 2002, went to the Pro Bowl last season in his first full year as a starter.
