Well it appears Brian Westbrook’s return to the Eagles’ lineup may be very short-lived.
Big Red said in his press conference Monday that Westbrook, who was back in the lineup after sitting out last week against Chicago with an ankle injury, broke two ribs on the eighth play of the Eagles’ 23-17 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Westbrook went to the sidenline holding his chest after the play, but after a few stretches and some trainer assistance was back out on the field for the next series. He managed to finish the game with 12 carries for 33 yards and six catches for 51 yards.
When Andy Reid was asked about Westbrook’s availability for next week against the 49ers, he was his usual “I’m not disclosing anything” – self:
We’ll see how it works out for him.
