Westbrook On Track To Return

Running back Brian Westbrook appears set to return to the lineup after practicing Friday. Westbrook didn't have much to say after practice, other than he was "good" when reporters surrounded him, but head coach Andy Reid made it clear that No. 36 is on schedule to play for the first time since suffering a concussion against Washington on October 26.

"He looked like he had a little bounce in his step here the last couple of days. I (have been) hesitant to put him on the turf for the (past two days)," said Reid on Friday. "We rotated a little bit today. He took a lot of reps yesterday and he had a lot of bounce and he came out feeling good and no problems."

How much will Westrook play? How many touches will he get? Reid didn't get specific.

"He'll continue to rotate and we'll just see how he does. I'm not going to just throw him in for the whole game," said Reid. "LeSean (McCoy) has done a nice job when he's been called on, so that gives us some flexibility."
