Eagles Westbrook To Miss Playoffs


Recommended Posts

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Brian Westbrook, the Philadelphia Eagles' leading scorer with 13 touchdowns, will miss the playoffs because of a torn triceps muscle.

The Eagles had hoped Westbrook could play out the season before having surgery, but a second opinion ruled out the possibility. Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation Tuesday in Alabama.

The Eagles will face Green Bay on Sunday in an NFC divisional playoff game.

Westbrook split time with Correll Buckhalter and Duce Staley this season, and was Philadelphia's main punt returner. Reno Mahe or James Thrash will return punts, and Staley and Buckhalter will share the running back duties.

Westbrook was injured in the first half of a 31-7 victory over the Washington Redskins on Dec. 27. The second-year pro had 613 yards rushing on 117 carries and seven TDs. He also had 37 receptions for 332 yards and four TDs and returned two punts for scores.


....hmmmm....running back by committee just got smaller...sizeable loss but i dont think it will matter...
