The Philadelphia Eagles have made a move that could be a strong hint that running back Brian Westbrook will be returning to action this week.
Running back P.J. Hill has been released, and his spot on the roster has been replaced by Martin Rucker, a tight end signed to the team’s practice squad in September, two days after being waived by the Browns.
Rucker is the brother of former Panthers defensive end Mike Rucker, and he’s also a former college teammate of receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Recent reports have indicated the Westbrook, who has missed several weeks after suffering a second concussion in two games, could be playing this weekend.
