McNabb leaves game with rib injury

The Eagles are rolling in Carolina, but Donovan McNabb has given Philly fans a big scare.

McNabb was shaken up on a three-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to make the score 38-10.

McNabb was hit by two defenders on the play and stayed down in the end zone for a while after scoring.  He walked off the field under his own power, but he went to the locker room after briefly talking to Andy Reid on the sideline.  McNabb was holding his hips as he left the field and had his back looked at.  

With such a big lead, the Eagles have the luxury to play Kevin Kolb, who has taken over at quarterback for the Eagles.  (The Eagles got the ball back quickly after another Jake Delhomme interception.)

The Eagles say McNabb has a rib injury, and he is doubtful to return.

UPDATE:  McNabb returned to sit on the bench on the sidelines, and still has his pads on.
