    The Eagles quietly confirmed that they anticipate Eagles running back Brian Westbrook playing next weekend against the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field. Only a medical setback would keep Westbrook — who has sustained two concussions this season — from returning to action, Sunday night Westbrook sat out his fourth straight game. Westbrook is trying out the DNA helmet that according to reports uses the same shock-absorbing technology used to protect Army paratroopers and Navy SEALS. The DNA is more rounded and bulbous than a conventional helmet and it’s engineered to turn hits into glancing blows, lessening the chance of concussions, the interior of the helmet also has added cushioning.

    Cletusaurus YES! YES! YES!

    Dude really needs to just sit the rest of the season out and come back next year. He can be a "competitor" and a "warrior" all he wants, but it's going to get his brains turned into egg salad if he keeps trying to come back too soon.

    Screw that crap. Don't buy into the cat mentality out there about concussions. He's fine. He needs to get his butt back on the field.

    From what I've heard he's been working with the scout team this week. I wouldn't expect him to see much action this week. They may work him in slowly to see how he reacts. I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the inactive list either.
