PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook has an abdominal strain and his availability for Sunday's game against the New York Giants will be determined later this week.
``We'll know better in the next day or two,'' coach Andy Reid said. ``Right now he's pretty sore.''
Westbrook left in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 56-21 win over Detroit on Sunday and the injury was originally listed as bruised ribs. Reid said Westbrook wasn't hurt on a hit, but instead on a sharp move while running.
``It was kind of a freak thing,'' Reid said.
Westbrook had 110 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 14 carries. He also caught five passes for 111 yards and scored on a 43-yard screen pass.
