Westbrook Dealing with Less Carries in the Offense

NFL.com reports on a story about how RB Brian Westbrook is dealing with less carries this season for the Eagles:

Eagles RB Brian Westbrook had just eight touches against the Buccaneers last week, a surprising scene to not only fantasy owners and Philadelphia fans alike but to Westbrook himself. Eagles coach Andy Reid has said that Westbook could split more carries with rookie RB LeSean McCoy in the future. Westbrook told reporters that he understands the situation and he wants to be a good teammate. “I see the plays and how they’re calling them, and in this offense, you call the plays for a lot of your playmakers,” Westbrook said. “This week, we called a lot of plays for Jeremy [Maclin]. In previous weeks, we’ve called a lot of plays for DeSean [Jackson]. I know that at some point we are going to have to run the ball. At some point, they are going to have to put the ball in my hands. For me, I have to be constantly working on my game, constantly getting better every single week, and I’ll have the opportunity to do what I do with the ball in my hands.”
