Westy 'Good to Go'

Philly.com - [Full Article]

Brian Westbrook is practicing today, as the Eagles prepare to host the Dallas Cowboys, and is "good to go" for Sunday, "unless there"s a setback here," Andy Reid said Wednesday. Westbrook suffered a concussion in the Eagles' victory at Washington.

Other Reid highlights: Strongside linebacker Chris Gocong (quad, hamstring) is not practicing today. Ditto DE Victor Abiamiri and Kevin Curtis, who have knee issues. DE Chris Clemons, working with a shoulder sprain, is going to try to practice.

Reid said he believes Westbrook's concussion is "a freak thing" and not indicative of any sort of descent into constant injury worries. "I thought he was as good as I've ever seen him" before Westbrook ran into London Fletcher's knee, Reid said. He joked that Westbrook's head generally collides with defenders' shins, but in this instance, "the two shortest guys on the field" ran into each other.

Westbrook called the concussion "a fluke thing," and said that while he worries about the effects of such an injury many years in the future, he can't be thinking about it when he takes the field against the Cowboys.

"You have to go out there and play worry-free football," he said.
