Eagles coach Andy Reid said on his radio show today that backup quarterback Kevin Kolb will start Thursday's preseason finale at the New York Jets and that Michael Vick will be inserted occassionally in that span. Vick will then take over under center in the second half. No word on when, and if, A.J. Feeley will play.

Reid normally gives his starters off in the final tune-up before the regular season, so starting quarterback Donovan McNabb will get the night off.

Reid also said that middle linebacker Omar Gaither sprained his ankle in practice today. Gaither recently returned from a knee sprain and was given the starting spot after Joe Mays lost it.
