Eagles' Westbrook returning to practice

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Brian Westbrook is returning to practice with the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time since sustaining two concussions in a three-week span.

Coach Andy Reid says the star running back will be eased back into action by working with the scout team Wednesday, and he hasn't ruled him out for Sunday's game at the New York Giants.

Westbrook says he feels pretty good and he isn't "scared" to play, though he's concerned about the possible long-term effects. Westbrook says doctors have assured him his chances of sustaining another concussion won't increase if he's fully healed when he returns.

Westbrook sustained his first career concussion at Washington on Oct. 26. He returned against San Diego on Nov. 15 after missing two games only to sustain another one.
