PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles running back Brian Westbrook was deactivated for Sunday's game against Baltimore because of a cracked rib.

Westbrook, injured in last week's victory over Cleveland, leads the Eagles with 458 yards rushing and has 31 catches for 249 yards.

Veteran Dorsey Levens started for Westbrook against the Ravens. The Eagles were seeking the first 7-0 start in franchise history.

Baltimore was without tight end Todd Heap (ankle), running back Jamal Lewis (suspension) and tackle Jonathan Ogden (hamstring).
