I knew that he was not 100%, but the way I read this is that he might have injured himself more in this weeks game.Thoughts?Eagles RB Brian Westbrook, responding to a comment made by coach Andy Reid on Monday, told WPEN-AM in Philadelphia Monday night that he's still battling injuries and took the blame for the team's running woes vs. the Giants in Week 10. Reid had said earlier in the day that Westbrook wasn't at 100 percent, and the stud running back agreed. "There's no question I'm not 100 percent. My goal is to be out there and try to help this team," Westbrook said. "I want to be out there until coach feels I'm not able to help this team anymore. I think I'm still able to help this team win football games. ... The thing about a high-ankle sprain is that it doesn't go away very quickly ... throughout a game, at any point, it can come right back, and that pain can come right back."
Let's also give some credit to the Giants' run defense for being one of the top units in the NFL. If this was a bad run defense, like Cincinnati for example, then there would be cause for concern. That said, Westbrook and the Eagles play at the Bengals in Week 11, and there is no doubt that a healthy Westbrook should dominate this defense. It's expected that he will, but we're going to have to keep an eye on his health leading up to and during the game. For now, expect him to be a No. 1 Fantasy RB for your team this week.
