|Westbrook Has Physical With Rams
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Free agent running back Brian Westbrook, released by the Eagles in February after an injury-plagued 2009 season, had a physical with the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo was noncommittal about the visit during the third day of the NFL draft, saying it was "way, way early." The Rams did not pick a running back, although they need a backup behind Pro Bowler Steven Jackson.
Westbrook led the NFL with 2,104 yards from scrimmage in 2007, but missed eight games last year with a pair of concussions and an ankle injury while scoring only two touchdowns.
