Reid says they will play it safe with Westbrook
Brian Westbrook ended the 31-23 loss to San Diego on the sideline with another concussion.
Westbrook had missed the last two games after suffering a concussion against Washington. Against the Chargers, he had six carries for 28 yards and caught two passes for 26 yards. His last carry came on the opening drive of the second half.
Coach Andy Reid said Westbrook "took a heck of a hit," leading to the concussion.
“We’ll just see how Brian does here," he said. "That’s a concern of everybody, us included and Brian.”
As for Westbrook's status, Reid said, "It’s too soon ... We’ll make sure we evaluate it, and take every step that we can to make sure that he’s OK. We did that the last time. We’re going to keep doing it ... I feel bad for Brian, something our docs are going to look at it and be on top of as soon as we get back."
He later said, "We’re going to do everything the right way, and take every precautionary measure to make sure Brian’s OK. In these types of situations, football is secondary. You have to look out for this kid for his future and make sure he is OK before he gets back out there.”
