PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Donovan McNabb's status is uncertain for the Eagles' game against New Orleans next Sunday because of a cracked rib.
"He's pretty sore," coach Andy Reid said Monday. "He's going to try and battle through it. He'll struggle to practice."
Third-year pro Kevin Kolb filled in for McNabb during Philadelphia's 38-10 victory over Carolina in the season opener. He would start against the Saints if McNabb can't play.
Michael Vick is not eligible because he was suspended for the first two regular-season games to complete penalties for bankrolling a dogfighting ring. The Eagles don't have a fourth QB on their roster.
McNabb got hurt when he took a hard shot on a 3-yard TD run in the third quarter.
