49ers to follow Eagles old plan with Westbrook?

Matt Barrows on Twitter - [Full Article]

Brian Westbrook not practicing again today. But don't panic -- that was his routine in Philly. He'll practice Friday and play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: 

Westbrook was always banged up with the Eagles and this was a standard procedure week-to-week. He'd always play Sunday and usually show no effects. This looks like it could be part of the same formula the 49ers are using. Westy is well rested after not seeing a lot of action this season backing up Frank Gore, but is 31 and not the biggest back in the league. He took a lot of punishment while with the Eagles with his heavy workload.
