A dose of very bad news here from the Philadelphia Inquirer's Eagles blog:

Brian Westbrook played most of Sunday's loss against the Washington Redskins with two fractured ribs, Eagles coach Andy Reid revealed at his news conference this morning.

Reid said did not guarantee that his star running back would be able to play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

You know the drill here. The 68 percent owned Correll Buckhalter would be the add, if he's still available in your league.

Westbrook actually ran for a touchdown after suffering the injury, so we can't completely rule him out. The Eagles have a bye after traveling to San Francisco. If it weren't for this injury, Westbrook might have been atop the Week 6 running back ranks. Instead, we're looking at another last-minute decision.

If you're in a position to look further ahead, Westbrook is obviously a good buy right now. The Eagles face Arizona and Cleveland late in the year, in Weeks 13 and 15.
