Reid: Kolb Likely To Be QB Sunday

Kevin Kolb has taken all the reps as the starting quarterback in practice this week Andy Reid said Friday. With Michael Vick listed as questionable with a quad contusion, Reid said "it would obviously be a stretch" for Vick to play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys with the Eagles firmly locked into the No. 3 seed in the NFC. If Kolb does get the start, it would be his start since the Week 7 loss to the Tennessee Titans right before the bye.

"Kevin's handled it with a lot of class," Reid said of the way Kolb has acted as the backup quarterback this season. "Obviously he wants to be out there ... but thank goodness that he and Michael have the relationship they have and they they're wired like they are."

Also listed as questionable, according to Reid, are right tackle Winston Justice (knee), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot), defensive tackle Trevor Laws (shoulder) and cornerback Asante Samuel (knee). Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley has been declared as out with a dislocated elbow.
