PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles running back Brian Westbrook has a sprained right ankle and he hopes he'll be able to play next week.

Westbrook had his ankle taped in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 48-22 loss to New Orleans on Sunday. He had 52 yards rushing on 13 attempts.

Westbrook says the ankle feels sore. He had surgery to remove scar tissue and bone fragments from his right ankle in June.

The Eagles play Kansas City next week.
