Kolb Comfortable In First-Team Role

Kevin Kolb is in a position that he has never been in before - taking the first-team reps all week in preparation to start a regular season NFL game.

With Donovan McNabb temporarily sidelined with a fractured rib and his status for the upcoming game against the New Orleans Saints in question, Kolb is working with the starters as the team prepares for the home opener.

"It felt great, it's the first time in a long time I've gotten to (practice with the starting offense)," Kolb said. "It's a good feeling. You get to run the huddle the way you want to.

"You know, you try not to change too much but you also want to put your own little twist on things, and I'm looking forward to it. It was a great feeling."
