Dr. Mark Meyerson will perform the operation in Baltimore. The Eagles called the procedure ``a debridement'' of the ankle.
Westbrook missed one game last season with a high ankle sprain. He had minor knee surgery after the Eagles lost to Arizona in the NFC championship game.
An All-Pro in 2007, Westbrook had 936 yards rushing last season, caught 54 passes for 402 yards and had a career-best 14 touchdowns.
The Eagles drafted running back LeSean McCoy in the second round to provide insurance for the injury-prone Westbrook, who turns 30 in Sept. 2.
