Donovan Mcnabb did not practice Wednesday because of a broken rib that forced him to miss the Eagles' 48-22 loss to New Orleans last Sunday.
Kevin Kolb would make his second straight start if McNabb can't play against Kansas City this week. Coach Andy Reid isn't sure whether Jeff Garcia or Michael Vick would be the backup quarterback.
Reid wouldn't even say that Vick is definitely playing against the Chiefs. Vick is eligible for the first time after serving a two-game suspension as the final league penalty for his role in running a dogfighting ring.
But Vick, calling himself "The Wildcat Originator," says he's ready for whatever role the Eagles have for him. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback has not played a regular-season game since Dec. 31, 2006 with Atlanta.
