King: McNabb unlikely to play next week

It’s been a long, fun ride on this second Sunday of the 2009 football season.  Heck, it’s not even Sunday anymore.

Before we sign off for the night, we’ll leave you with one final nugget as the news cycle spins forward to Week Three.

NBC’s Peter King reported after Sunday night’s game that Donovan McNabb was not expected to play in Philly’s home game next week against the Chiefs.

Kevin Kolb is expected to get the start, and the Eagles will have a ten-play package to work Michael Vick into the game.

Based on that report, it’s fair to expect Jeff Garcia to take most of the snaps if something happened to Kolb.

Andy Reid will update the situation at his Monday morning press conference, and Florio will be updating all the news from around the league well before that. 

Thanks for spending your Sunday with us; it’s time to get a ride home.

    Personally I think McNabb’s rib injury came during that IHOP commercial. He just reinjured it during the game.

    I would just like to make a correction Florio. Dwight is no longer a volunteer law enforcement officer, he resigned his post after letting Michael use his pee to pass a drug test. Michael later had the head security guard deputize him, not that there’s anything wrong with that. How come you don’t mention the Simpsons as often? Do you consider it up there with The Office and Seinfeld?

    The Eagles could start one of Vick’s dead pit bulls and beat the Chiefs.

    I apologize, I should make it clear that Mike’s mistake came in the live chat and not this article. Just in case you are wondering what the heck I was talking about.

    Seven points against the Chiefs should get the job done.

    You’re a week too later Peter. Last week you were openly questioning Glazer’s report that McNabb was out. Wow, great insideing by you to go out on a limb this week.
