Eagles RB Brian Westbrook suffered a concussion during the first quarter of Monday night’s 27-17 win against the Redskins and didn’t return.
Westbrook, who finished with three carries for 13 yards, was down for several minutes at FedEx Field after taking a knee to the back of the head at the end of a running play. He walked off the field under his own power, and he immediately left the field with two trainers and headed directly into the stadium tunnel, presumably for the locker room.
Westbrook was injured at the end of a 5-yard run midway through the quarter. As he fell forward, Redskins LB London Fletcher‘s knee caught the back of Westbrook’s helmet, snapping the running back’s head forward against his momentum.
As Westbrook was down on the field being examined, his brother — Redskins CB Byron Russell — stood nearby him.
