Fantasy Football Tips, Brian Westbrook RB Eagles

Fantasy Knuckleheads@_knuckleheadsCorrespondent IOctober 27, 2009

Westbrook was knocked out of the game with a knee to the head. I’m sure he will play next week but if you have the roster space LeSean McCoy is already splitting time and worth a look in PPR leagues! 39% owned in most leagues McCoy is already on a time share and Westbrook could implode at any point this season. We don’t yet know the full extent of Westbrooks injury however it was a nasty hit that had him dazed and down for a good while.

************ UPDATED 10/27*************

There’s a “good chance” Brian Westbrook (concussion) won’t be able to play in Week 8, according to Philadelphia Daily News NFL writer Paul Domowitch.

Westbrook was out cold for a couple seconds after taking a knee to the back of the head on Monday night. Even though the Eagles have a huge game against the Giants this week, playing Westbrook would be irresponsible. On Monday night, Eagles coach Andy Reid said he’s not going to put B-West out there if he’s at risk. Look for rookie LeSean McCoy to get the majority of work this week.
