Reid expecting McNabb to be back for Tampa Bay - [Full Article]

Donovan Mcnabb could return Oct. 11 when the Eagles play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after their bye week.

"I think he will, but we'll see how it goes," Eagles coach Andy Reid said yesterday after his team's 34-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

McNabb's return from a fractured rib will likely have a domino effect, with Kevin Kolb resuming his backup role and Jeff Garcia getting sent back to the unemployment line.

Reid made it clear that there isn't going to be a quarterback controversy even though Kolb threw for more than 300 yards in each of his two starts.

"Donovan is the quarterback of the team," Reid said. "That's not a problem. I don't think it's a problem with Kevin, and I don't think it's a problem for our team, and I know it's not a problem for me."

Kolb said a return to the sidelines won't be easy, but he'll understand it.
