News: Donovan McNabb Breaks Ribs In Win

Quarterback Donovan McNabb left the game on Sunday after taking a shot to his lower back while rushing for a touchdown. After the game, the Eagles told the media he had broken ribs on the play.

His status moving forward has not yet been determined.

With the Eagles scoring a resounding victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, McNabb was able to miss time without much of an impact, but the idea of backup Kevin Kolb being forced into action against the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees, who threw six touchdown passes on Sunday, doesn't bode well for Philadelphia.
