PHILADELPHIA (AP) -All-Pro running back Brian Westbrook is day-to-day with a strained ankle, an encouraging sign for a Philadelphia Eagles team that can't afford to lose its top offensive player.
An MRI on Monday revealed no damaged ligaments, coach Andy Reid said.
``He's limping around without the crutches,'' Reid said. ``I guess that's a positive.''
Westbrook injured his right ankle while hurdling a teammate on a 2-yard run on the first play of the second quarter of Sunday's 15-6 win over Pittsburgh. He walked to the locker room without help, but didn't return and left the stadium on crutches.
Westbrook led the NFL with a franchise-record 2,104 total yards from scrimmage last season and earned his second trip to the Pro Bowl. He signed a a new three-year contract in August worth $21 million, including $13 million guaranteed the first two years.
