Eagles running back Brian Westbrook had an injury-riddled season that included two concussions, a nagging ankle injury and limited production.
He also turned 30 in September, the age that so often has been the expiration date for NFL running backs.
But it is Westbrook's left knee that could ultimately end the tailback's career with the Eagles and hinder any attempt to catch on with another team, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
