PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia quarterback Koy Detmer is expected to be out 2-5 weeks because of a dislocated left elbow.

Detmer, playing in place of Donovan McNabb, was hurt during the third quarter Monday.

An MRI on Wednesday revealed no ligament damage, but Detmer will miss Sunday's game against St. Louis.

A.J. Feeley, a fifth-round pick last season who started eight games at Oregon, will start.

Tim Hasselbeck, who was on the practice squad, will back up Feeley. Former Pittsburgh quarterback Tee Martin was signed to the practice squad Wednesday.

Packer leaves Tampa

Green Bay left tackle Chad Clifton was flown from Tampa to Green Bay, where he remains hospitalized with a pelvis injury after Warren Sapp's blindside hit Sunday.

Clifton is in severe pain and can't walk, but fears of spinal damage have being alleviated, coach Mike Sherman said.

Also, offensive tackle Mark Tauscher signed through 2006.

BEARS: Quarterback Jim Miller (shoulder and elbow tendinitis) couldn't throw during practice but said he'll be ready Sunday.

BENGALS: Receiver Michael Westbrook was released. He started only four games and had eight catches for 94 yards.

BRONCOS: Quarterback Brian Griese (sprained left knee) and tight end Shannon Sharpe (dislocated right elbow) practiced without any setbacks. Both will be a game-time decision Sunday.

CHARGERS: Tackle Damion McIntosh (sprained ankle) is expected to play Sunday after missing the past three games. But offensive tackle Vaughn Parker (triceps) will miss his third consecutive game.

COWBOYS: Safety Darren Woodson was placed on injured reserve because of an abdominal injury sustained Nov.17.

DOLPHINS: Quarterback Jay Fiedler (broken thumb) and receiver Cris Carter (kidney) practiced. Ray Lucas will start Sunday with Fiedler No.2 or No.3. Carter is expected to return Dec.9.

GIANTS: Quarterback Kerry Collins left practice early with a back spasm but intends to practice today. X-rays showed no problem.

JAGUARS: Former Cowboy kicker Richie Cunningham signed.

PANTHERS: Rodney Peete will start at quarterback. The backup, Chris Weinke or rookie Randy Fasani, will be a game-time decision.

SEAHAWKS: Linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski returned to practice for the first time in almost three weeks because of a high left ankle sprain. The initial diagnosis had him missing 4-6 weeks, but he is questionable for Sunday.

TEXANS: Quarterback David Carr (sprained ankle) is probable for Sunday and said he expects to play.

VIKINGS: Running back Michael Bennett (sprained ankle) practiced and was upgraded to probable for Sunday.
