Westbrook speaks -- sort of

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Les Bowen, the intrepid beat man for the Philadelphia Daily News, spent consecutive days attempting to land an interview with the mercurial Brian Westbrook. Here's what he came up with.

Asked about undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee recently, Westbrook said, "I didn't have to have it. It was a surgery that'll make things a lot better, so the [week-to-week] soreness won't be there and hopefully, I'll be able to participate in practices without so much pain. It was a basic cleanout."

Westbrook refused to answer Bowen's questions regarding the changes the Eagles have made this offseason.
