New, comments

Minutes ago Andy Reid announced at his day after press conference that Brian Westbrook has fractured ribs. I'll update as soon as more info about what this will mean comes available. 

Things going from bad to worse.

Head coach Andy Reid updated the injury situation on Monday and announced that running back Brian Westbrook fractured two of his ribs during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Westbrook came to the sideline pointing to his ribs after he scored. Trainers worked on him on the sideline before taking him into the locker room for further evaluation. It was during that time where Westbrook received a Cortisone shot. After the game, Westbrook said that he would likely have an MRI on his ribs Monday.
