ESPN: Brian Westbrook likely out tonight

Despite the fact that Andy Reid has insisted all week that Brian Westbrook would play this weekend, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the RB is out against the Cowboys.

In an NFC East divisional showdown between Philadelphia and Dallas, Eagles running back Brian Westbrook is not expected to play, according to two league sources.

An Eagles official Sunday morning was non-committal.

Obviously we'd like to have Westbrook back, but it's not as if the Eagles have relied on him this year. Of all the big plays and highlights the Eagles offense has generated this year, Westbrook hasn't really been a part of any. Still, it would be nice to have #36 back there in a big game.
