Westbrook Not Ready To Return To Action

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Eagles running back Brian Westbrook still may not be ready to play against San Francisco this Sunday as he continues to recover from two concussions he suffered. Westbrook's "neurological" testing is not yet where it needs to be for the running back to be allowed to play. He initially suffered a concussion Oct. 26 against the Redskins, then suffered another Nov. 15 against San Diego.
