Kolb will start Sunday against Atlanta

Kolb, not Vick, will start on Sunday against the Falcons

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid proclaimed Friday that QB Kevin Kolb will start under center for the Eagles on Sunday against the Falcons.

The news comes despite Michael Vick taking snaps with the scout team on Friday.  However, #7 is still unready to return to his role as a starter.  Vick will miss his second consecutive start because of sore ribs.

Two starting linemen for Philly have been ruled out already for Sunday: Left tackle Jason Peters (knee) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow).

I still expect Vick to see some time, take some snaps in the “wildcat” against his former club.

Interesting stuff concerning the Eagles present starting QB: According to ESPN Stats & Information, 59 of Kolb’s 76 pass attempts have been thrown for 10 yards or less.

    I wouldn’t start Vick either if he still has soar ribs. Who needs him to get hit hard again when he’s not 100% yet. Kolb did a decent job last week though he’ll now playing against a tougher defense. It should be interesting.
