Once again Philadelphia Q.B. Donivan Mcnabb gets hurt, the question is WHO replaces him?

Kevin Kolb will start in place of McNabb, Andy Reid said. Who will back up Kevin Kolb? Will it be Jeff Garcia or Michael Vick?

Vick is now eligible to play for the 1st time sence being convicted of running a dogfighting ring.

Questions have been asked if Vick is ready to play 100% for a full game, Reid replied back with, "Is he 100 percent back and ready to play a whole game? I can't tell you that, I don't think so, and I don't plan on putting him in that position right now."

So that rules out Vick, what was the reason for signing him though if he will not be used? maybe to put fans in the seats?

Mcnabb is working on recovery so he can be back as soon as possible. "I feel pretty good, better than last Monday," McNabb said. "It's one day at a time. I think there is a process that is going on, and the progression makes you feel confident that things are going to be better. Hopefully, it will be quicker than later. I'm looking forward to being back out on the field."
