Your daily Westbrook update

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook was scheduled to work out Monday as he continues his comeback from a concussion suffered against the Redskins. Coach Andy Reid said that Westbrook woke up with a "slight headache" Saturday morning after working out Friday. Westbrook went through a battery of tests last week and the Eagles decided to err on the side of caution in sitting him against the Giants on Sunday.

"We're going to make sure he's OK to perform," Reid said Monday. "We'll see how it goes this week."

Unless there's a setback -- such as more headaches -- it looks like Westbrook will play against the Cowboys. He's not having a great season by his standards, but he's still a player teams have to account for. And I'm sure he was envious when he saw Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg calling all those running plays against the Giants.

The Cowboys will likely use a spy on Westbrook throughout the game. I don't think either of the inside linebackers, Keith Brooking and Bradie James, are good candidates for that job. The Cowboys could use safety Gerald Sensabaugh in that role some of the time.

We'll keep you posted on Westbrook's progress, but right now the Eagles expect him to participate in practice Wednesday.
