LANDOVER, Md. -- Brian Westbrook suffered a concussion in the first quarter of tonight's Eagles-Redskins game and the running back won't return.

On the Eagles' second possession, Westrbrook took a handoff and forged ahead six yards, but at the end of the carry he was kneed in the helmet by Washington linebacker London Fletcher. Westbrook laid motionless on FedEx Field as many players from both teams surrounded him. Some were visibly concerned.

One of the Redskins was Brian's younger brother, Byron, a special teams player. After several minutes, however, Westbrook rose and was helped off the field. LeSean McCoy took over full for Westbrook.
