Kolb Excited To Add Vick As Weapon

Eagles backup Kevin Kolb said last night that he doesn't feel threatened at all by the team's acquisition of Michael Vick, instead he's excited that the team has added more firepower to an already explosive offense.

"I think he can help this team," Kolb said, "And shoot, whatever can put us over the edge and help us win a Super Bowl, I'm all for it."

Kolb said that he spoke with head coach Andy Reid and coach Reid clarified that Kolb is still Donovan McNabb's backup.

"I spoke with Andy (Reid," Kolb said. "He said I'm fine, I've done a great job so far and just keep working hard. Don't worry about anything.

"I don't think anyone knows what (Vick's) future holds with this team, but for me, I've always been team oriented, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do on the field."

Kolb said that this locker room will be a great fit for Vick.

"We have such a good core here," Kolb said, "That it's not going to affect us. Everybody deserves a second chance, and I know Andy believes in that."

As for the left MCL sprain that left Kolb out of practice and the preseason opener against the Patriots Thursday night, he said he hopes to be back on the field in about a week.

"There's uneasiness because I'm not on the field," Kolb said, "I'd like to be playing .. It should be right around a week, nothing major at all."
