Still Unable to Practice, Eagles’ McNabb Unlikely to Play Sunday

Still Unable to Practice, Eagles' McNabb Unlikely to Play Sunday
PHILADELPHIA — Donovan McNabb is still not able to practice and it appears unlikely he will play this week.

McNabb, who suffered a broken rib in a season-opening win over the Carolina Panthers, is expected to miss his second straight game as the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) meet the Kansas City Chiefs (0-2) at Lincoln Financial Field.

With the Eagles on a bye next week, resting McNabb gives him more time to heal before the Eagles host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 11. McNabb was at Thursday’s practice, but only watched.

Third-year QB Kevin Kolb started last week in a loss to the New Orleans Saints and is expected to start again.

Veterans Jeff Garcia and Michael Vick, back from his league suspension, will be the backups.
