The likelihood of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb returning to start during Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs appear very remote; more than likely, Kevin Kolb will take snaps under center and start his second consecutive game, according to Peter King.
King, in his MMQ column over at Sports Illustrated, had this to say about McNabb’s status:
“Vick was never, ever signed to be the regular quarterback, isn’t ready to be the regular quarterback, and wouldn’t be prepared to digest an entire gameplan until at least November. I can guarantee you that Andy Reid, if he needs a quarterback to sub for McNabb this week and/or next, is dead-set on Kevin Kolb. As Reid said to me Sunday night: “Kevin Kolb is the least of my worries. He threw for, what, 380 yards?” Nope; 391.”
I would expect Eagles head coach Andy Reid to make a final decision in reference to the starter for next week’s game at his news conference on Monday. By the way, should – God forbid – anything happen to Kolb, expect Jeff Garcia to be the quarterback.
