Eagles' Westbrook will visit two concussion specialists

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles running back Brian Westbrook will visit two concussion specialists in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Westbrook sustained his second concussion in three weeks during Philadelphia's 31-23 loss at San Diego on Sunday. The 30-year-old former All-Pro suffered his first career concussion on Oct. 26 against Washington.

Westbrook first will consult with neuropsychologist Mark R. Lovell, head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder says in a statement. After that visit, Westbrook and Lovell will meet with neurosurgeon Joseph Maroon.

Burkholder says Lovell has been consulting with the Eagles' medical staff on Westbrook's recovery since his first concussion.
