Westbrook has successful surgery

Philly Burbs - [Full Article]

Eagles RB Brian Westbrook had surgery on his right ankle Friday. The Eagles said Westbrook had two bone fragments removed and scar tissue cleaned out. In addition, there was some inflammation in the tendon that moves his big toe because that tendon was laying up against a loose bone fragment. While there is no specific timetable for Westbrook's return, Eagles head
athletic trainer Rick Burkholder said it shouldn't affect him for the start of the season. "Brian's doing well," said Burkholder at a Friday news conference. "He's going to be non-weight bearing for two weeks, then will see the doctor and we'll
take it week-by-week from there. "We feel pretty comfortable he'll be back by the beginning of the season, but
whether he'll be back by the beginning of training camp it's too early to tell." The two-time Pro Bowl selection underwent a procedure called a debridement, performed by Dr. Mark Meyerson in Baltimore. "I am not concerned about this injury," Burkholder stated. "We had an option to do or not do it and we decided to do it. He's going to be in really good
shape come [the] season."
