Eagles running back Brian Westbrook has been cleared to play against the Broncos this Sunday, not coincidentally with red zone running threat Mike Vick is nursing a strained quadriceps.
While Andy Reid said Westbrook - barring a setback - would be back on the field this weekend, he would not commit to starting the veteran of eight seasons. Reid only would allow that Westbrook would have a package of plays, and that it would be much less than that of rookie starter LeSean McCoy.
"I don’t think it’s fair to him just to throw him in and take every snap," Reid said. "He’ll have his role and we’ll go from there."
