Kevin Kolb is taking all the first-team repetitions at quarterback today at practice, while Donovan McNabb continues to rest a fractured rib, Eagles coach Andy Reid said.
Reid also said that the recently-acquired Jeff Garcia and the recently-activated Michael Vick will split reps with the scout team. Garcia was signed on Monday. Vick was taken off the exempt list yesterday and was added to the 53-man roster. He can practice, but he can't play Sunday against the Saints as he serves out the remainder of his two-game suspension. Vick will be reinstated by Week 3.
As for McNabb, Reid said that his quarterback is making progress, although he can't predict if he'll be ready to play Sunday. With Kolb running with the ones and the Eagles signing Garcia, the chance of McNabb being healthy enough to play seems unlikely.
"As far as the quarterback situation goes, I want to make [this] very clear: Kevin Kolb, right now, is the starting quarterback," Reid said. "If Donovan cannot play this week, Kevin will be the starting quarterback. ... Jeff Garcia becomes the backup. ... If Donovan is healthy he's the No. 3. If Donovan is not healthy to play he's the No. 2."
