With the release of the NFL schedule less than 15 minutes away, a number of leaks are starting to come out around the league.

The one of most interest to Eagles fans comes from Dan Hellie, a sports anchor for NBC 4 in Washington.

According to Hellie, Donovan McNabb will return to Philadelphia in Week 4 against the Eagles at the Linc. Oddly, the game is not slated for prime time.

That would compute to Sunday, Oct. 3, the same day of the Phillies' regular-season finale in Atlanta.

The Eagles will be in Washington in Week 10, with the game on Monday Night Football.

An Eagles spokesman had no comment on the Eagles-Redskins report. "Our lips are sealed until 7 p.m. [when the NFL releases the schedule]," the spokesman said.

A report out of Green Bay has the Eagles opening the season at home against the Packers at 4:15 on Sept. 12. The Detroit Free Press is reporting the Lions will play host to the Eagles in Week 2.
