Westbrook has ankle surgery
PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles running back Brian Westbrook had surgery on his right ankle on Friday and is expected to be ready for the regular season.
The procedure was done in Baltimore by specialist Dr. Mark Myerson. He removed scar tissue and bone fragments from the ankle, which Westbrook initially hurt last season in Week 3 against Pittsburgh. In a statement released by the team, Myerson said Westbrook likely will wear a boot for the next month and then begin rehab.Brian is doing well, he texted us and said he's doing well," trainer Rick Burkholder said. "We feel pretty comfortable that he'll be back by the beginning of the season. Whether he'll be back for training camp or not, it's too early to tell."
Gee Peterson seems to be the only top back that hasn't had surgery this offseason
