An MRI revealed that Brian Westbrook has fractured ribs. Apparently this happened on the 9th play of the Eagles first drive against the Redskins yesterday. Westbrook was noticeably in pain on the sidelines, and left the game for a short period of time. He was able to finish the game, but did not play very well.
Andy Reid gave his usual nothing answer as to the availability of Westbrook for next week against the 49ers.
“We’ll see how it works out for him.”
I am not a doctor, but I am guessing you should count Westbrook out of next weeks game. Even if he plays, he will be limited, and not very effective.
Just add this to the long list of things going wrong in 2008.
