Westbrook Seen, Not Heard

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook wasn't wearing any sort of protective equipment on his right ankle, which underwent a surgical cleanout early last month. Westbrook seemed to be moving normally as he stretched and flexed, in a solo workout supervised by Eagles head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder Monday afternoon.

Westbrook, whose knee was similarly cleaned out earlier in the offseason, declined to speak with reporters afterward. He told a team spokesman he didn't plan to speak until he was practicing again, which, according to Eagles' coach Andy Reid's timetable, could be as early as mid-August. Reid offered that estimate in his remarks opening training camp Sunday evening. 

Westbrook is not expected to play in preseason games.
