The Philadelphia Inquirer has reported, citing unnamed team sources, that Kevin Kolb will get the start for the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday’s regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Inquirer stipulates that nothing has been made official by the team publicly, but that Kolb did say that he took reps with the first team in the Eagles’ practice on Wednesday.
"I’m just preparing like I’m going to be (starting) and that way I’m ready to go if that’s what’s called," Kolb said, in the Inquirer.
Due to the Eagles’ game with the Vikings being moved from Sunday night to Tuesday night, the result of a blizzard, Philadelphia will have just two practices (today and tomorrow) in preparation for Dallas. Starter Michael Vick suffered a strained quadriceps in that game, and without the chance of earning a first round bye, there’s not really any point in rushing Vick’s return.
If Kolb does start for the Eagles, it will be his first start since the team’s week seven match-up with Tennessee.
