ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell had his sprained right knee examined Monday morning and said he was "day-to-day" for next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"It's a day-to-day thing," Brunell said. "I had an MRI today. It feels better than it did on Saturday and I think each day I'll improve a little bit more."

Brunell was injured when he was sacked in the third quarter of Saturday's 35-20 victory over the New York Giants. Patrick Ramsey finished the game and will start against the Eagles if Brunell can't play.

A victory at Philadelphia would give the Redskins their first playoff berth in six years.

"We've worked real hard and we've put ourselves in a position where we can get in the playoffs," Brunell said, "and obviously this game is critical."
