NFL Network - [Full Article]

With Eagles running back Brian Westbrook suffering a second concussion – or possibly renewing symptoms from the initial concussion he sustained less than a month ago – there is speculation that he could be out for a prolonged period. Or possibly for the rest of the season, if not for good.

Westbrook was sidelined during Philadelphia’s 31-23 loss to San Diego Sunday and replaced by rookie Lesean Mccoy, who filled in the past two games Westbrook missed because of a concussion initially suffered Oct. 26 against Washington. This was Westbrook’s first game back since sustaining that concussion, which occurred when he took a knee to the head and briefly lost consciousness.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said no determination as to Westbrook’s future could immediately be made. However, he expressed worry about the eight-year veteran’s health, more so than his football career.
