Westbrook said Wednesday that he feels fresh and hopes he'll be back to normal after only a few carries. He believes he can be counted on to carry a full load in Sunday's opener at Carolina.
Westbrook has two 1,000-yard seasons and he also just turned 30. Even as age and injuries take their toll on Westbrook, he says he's still capable of playing at an elite level.
Meanwhile, Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb says Michael Vick has served his time and wishes the disgraced quarterback was eligible to play in the season opener at Carolina.
McNabb says he's disappointed for Vick and believes he should have the opportunity to play in the first game.
Vick will not be reinstated until the third game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 27. He can't practice with the team until he is placed on the roster.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Vick will travel with the team to Carolina. Reid also says Vick will watch practice.
Vick signed with Philadelphia on Aug. 13 and played in two preseason games.
