McCoy ready to step in - again

Delaware Online - [Full Article]

The Eagles haven't said Brian Westbrook won't play, but he hasn't done anything on the field since sustaining a concussion in the first quarter Monday night against Washington.

"He did better today," coach Andy Reid said of Westbrook in a statement Thursday. "He's feeling a little bit better [Thursday] than [Wednesday] ... We'll add a little bit [today] and see how he does. It's still going to be a game-time decision."

If Westbrook must sit, Lesean Mccoy and first-year pickup Eldra Buckley must carry the rushing load.

If that's the case, the two say bring it on.

"I've been in this situation before," said McCoy, who started against New Orleans and Kansas City in place of Westbrook. "The preparation is a little different, and you have to work on things like pass protection, but I'm kind of in the flow with the offense, so I don't think anything will surprise me."
