Eagles' Westbrook to try same helmet used by Navy Seals
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Eagles quietly confirmed that they anticipate Eagles running back Brian Westbrook playing next weekend against the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field.
Only a medical setback would keep Westbrook — who has sustained two concussions this season — from returning to action.
Sunday night Westbrook sat out his fourth straight game. He’s been sidelined six of the last seven games with concussion issues.
Westbrook is trying out the DNA helmet that according to reports uses the same shock-absorbing technology used to protect Army paratroopers and Navy SEALS.
