Brian Westbrook's status for Sunday's showdown with the Giants will probably be a game-time decision, coach Andy Reid said. Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters Westbrook currently has a headache and won't be cleared to exercise until it goes away. Then his reaction to exercise will be monitored, and his scores on neurological testing will have to improve to baseline level.
Westbrook left Monday night's game with a concussion after being kneed in the head, and did not practice today.
It might be telling that the Eagles made a roster move Wednesday, signing running back P.J. Hill from the Saints' practice squad. To make space, linebacker Omar Gaither went on IR, officially ending his season following Lisfranc surgery.
Burkholder said Westbrook had brief retrograde amnesia -- he can't remember anything from the time the play was called until he woke up on the field -- but he was fully functional after waking up and still remembers all of that very clearly.
