More on the Westbrook injury
Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
LANDOVER, Md. -- Eagles running back Brian Westbrook was able to walk off the field after taking a London Fletcher knee to the helmet. It was a scary moment as players from both teams appeared to huddle around him and pray. Westbrook's younger brother, Byron, is a defensive back for the Redskins. He was the only player who was allowed to stand next to his brother.
It certainly wasn't a glancing blow. Westbrook was being tackled by another player when Fletcher accidentally hit him with his knee. Westbrook's been ruled out of this game and I'd be a little surprised if you see him return in time for the Giants game next Sunday.
