Putting out brush fires dept:

Agent Todd France told the Daily News today that Eagles running back Brian Westbrook did indeed have a minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee, more than a month ago. Asked if Westbrook would be fine for minicamps, France said: "He's already fine. This was a long time ago. It was basically just a cleanup."

The Eagles never announced Westbrook's procedure. His left knee was a continuing irritation to him last season.

The Westbrook cleanup isn't nearly as significant news, of course, as the loss this past weekend of one of the franchise's all-time greats. Reaction continues to pour in on that, and it's kind of amusing to see the way some news outlets want to curry favor with the organization by pretending it's no big deal.
