Injuries to Brian Westbrook's left knee could force the Eagles' running back into retirement this season, according to a report by Howard Eskin on NBC-10.
As Eskin understands it, Westbrook's career as an Eagle is "definitely" over, and it's unlikely that he'll play again anywhere if he listens to doctors over the next few weeks.
Westbrook had just one touch and no carries in the Eagles' playoff loss to the Cowboys on Jan. 9. Per the report, the reason he wasn't involved much was that his knee was in such bad shape. Eskin went as far as to say Westbrook would not be able to pass a physical if he tried to catch on with another team.
Last week, I detailed how much Westbrook played in that game, as compared to Leonard Weaver and LeSean McCoy.
