Westbrook arrives for Eagles camp

Eagles runningback Brian Westbrook ended speculation about a holdout by reporting to the team's training camp at Lehigh University just before 6 p.m. Thursday. Westbrook and cornerback Lito Sheppard both reported to camp amid speculation that one or both might hold out due to a contract dispute.

Westbrook has said he wants a new contract and recently changed agents. He stopped short of committing to being at Lehigh University for the entire length of training camp, saying he's "here now. Hopefully for good."

Right guard Shawn Andrews was the only player who didn't report to camp. A team spokesman says Andrews is absent for personal reasons but that coach Andy Reid didn't excuse the absence. That means Andrews likely will be fined.
