Birds running back Brian Westbrook did not practice Wednesday and might be limited for the rest of the week. Westbrook is nursing a badly sprained right ankle and swollen left knee, said Wednesday that he probably won’t practice much this week. Instead he will prepare for the Eagles’ divisional-round playoff game against NFC East rival, the New York Giants with an intensive regimen of weightlifting, stretching and running in a pool.
Westbrook said he will start against the Giants on Sunday, but only after taking a round of anti-inflammatory medication on Saturday night and Sunday morning to get the pain and swelling to a tolerable level. Look for B West to torch the G-Men as he usually does.
