Byron Westbrook says Brian is ready; Blames helmet for concussion [nfl.com]

"He did get cleared medically when he [recently] visited the Rams," Byron Westbrook said. "They did a physical, a checkup on him, and the Rams did deem that he was good to play. Remember, at the end of the season, after the second one [concussion], he did get a change of helmets...It was more of a concussion helmet, which helped him take hits in the head."
