McNabb cracks rib in Eagles win

Andy Reid confirmed that Donovan McNabb cracked a rib on the play where he was hit pushing his way into the end zone for a TD. Andy did say that there was a "chance" McNabb could play next week. Most reports suggest that a cracked rib would keep the QB out of action for 2-3 weeks. That would mean that McNabb could be set to return after the bye in week 4.

A team source told the Inquirer that McNabb was "doubtful" for next Sunday's home opener against the Saints.

Kevin Kolb says he's ready to start if needed.

"This gives you a feel for the No. 1 defense in a game-time, regular season scenario," Kolb said. "It gives you a little bit of confidence and a sense of calmness. Hopefully, we can come out next week with 11 guys, rock and roll and put some points on the board.

"We have to rock and roll. There's no time to stagger."
