Eagles running back Brian Westbrook left Monday night’s game with a concussion, after the knee of Redskins linebacker London Fletcher struck Westbrook in the helmet.
As it turns out, Westbrook was knocked out.
Eagles coach Andy Reid confirmed Tuesday, during his weekly show on WIP radio in Philly, that Westbrook lost consciousness as a result of the hit. Reid also said that Westbrook had no memory of the incident.
Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, these facts indicate that Westbrook suffered a severe concussion.
Reid nevertheless said that he’s “counting on” Westbrook playing against the Giants on Sunday.
And we’re “counting on” the Eagles’ doctors telling Reid to butt the hell out if the Eagles’ doctors believe that Westbrook shouldn’t be playing football only six days after being knocked out.
