McCoy / Westbrook to split time

Andy Reid yesterday announced that he is going to begin to split Westbrook’s time once he comes back from his ankle injury. All indicators point to Westbrook returning after the bye. But what role will he play? Is the end of Westbrook in Philly near? The vultures are swarming over Westbrook’s head now. I love B West but I also agree that his time is near. RB’s over 30 are rarely successful in the NFL. Westbrook has sustained many injuries over the years and looks to have lost a step. DeSean Jackson is now the big play maker on this team. Westbrook’s need now is diminished with Jackson on the roster. Couple that with the emergence of McCoy and Westbrook’s demise is true. McCoy benefited from West being out all camp. This enabled McCoy to take all of the reps with the first team. If McCoy continues his dominance he will be sharing the big play role with Jackson.
