Brian Westbrook Is 'Ready To Roll' In Week 16

Brian Westbrook, who has not played since Nov. 15 after he suffered two concussions in three weeks, is expected to play in Philadelphia's Week 16 game against Denver.

"Unless there is a setback here, I think that’s what he’s counting on and the doctors, and everybody else," Reid said.

Reid said earlier in the week that the team would be keeping close watch of Westbrook's reps and that it could take time to get him back in the lineup. However, Reid said, Westbrook should bring some "fresh legs" to the offense.


Don't Expect Brian Westbrook To Play Against 49ers This Week

Brian Westbrook, who has missed six of the past seven weeks due to concussions, was set to return to practice with the Eagles on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean much for his playing status in Sunday's game with the 49ers. In fact, a source said "that there's almost no way Westbrook makes it back by Sunday." Head coach Andy Reid is equally pesimistic

Eagles coach Andy Reid said the concussion tests on running back Brian Westbrook are "better, but not all the way there." Asked if he were planning to play without Westbrook on Sunday against San Francisco, Reid said, "I am today ... It's a day-to-day thing." Westbrook will practice with scout team again today, Reid said. Reid said the team is "just getting him back into football shape."

When asked if he was moving forward as if Westbrook would be unavailable Sunday, Reid answered, "I am today."
