I was half paying attention to the game, but he was - at the least - shaken up AND did not play at all in overtime.
Levens got the bulk of carries in his absense.

He headed to the locker room before the end of the game, but no word on the injury.

They said it was a "chest injury." They showed him taking off his pads and they were trying to diagnose the injury. It didn't seem all that serious, but time will tell.

Dont worry about him, he walked off, seemed fine for an injured player, and the Eagles are overly cautious with him bordering on the point of paranoia, so wait till you find out what the injury is. And Mahe is more likely to get the bulk of the duty than Levens if Westbrook went down.

Just saw this on Sportsline regarding Westbrook's injury:

"Nobody responds better to adversity than Philadelphia's Andy Reid, and here we go again. With running back Brian Westbrook sidelined with a bruised sternum, Reid may have to turn to Reno Mahe and/or Dorsey Levens for next weekend's game with Baltimore -- provided, of course, that Westbrook's injury is as serious as it seemed Sunday. There is, however, another running back we're forgetting here, and that's quarterback Donovan McNabb. If you saw him run for 28 yards in overtime, you'd understand."


You might want to pick up Levens if you have Westbrook.

For people who repeatedly yelled at me for saying that Westbrook was injury prone, I told you so.

This guy has had major injuries in High School, College, and Pro Football. He also gets dinged up rather easily. He just cannot carry a feature back's load (i.e. 20+ carries per game and a few catches).
