Scratch Westbrook for Giants

To no one's surprise the Eagles scratched Brian Westbrook, capping a turbulent week in which head coach Andy Reid tried to get the Giants - and the media - to believe the running back would play just six days after a lights-out concussion.
Don't be surprised if Westbrook next week when the Eagles oppose the Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field.

Activating Westbrook Sunday would have been a slap in the face of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who earlier in the week lectured Congress how seriously the league is taking concussions.
The Eagles also scratched safety Victor Harris (ankle), wide receiver Kevin Curtis (knee), cornerback Dimitri Patterson (quadriceps) and offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.
Kevin Kolb  (pictured) was designated the third quarterback.

The Giants scratched wide receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder), among others.
