Reid: Kolb To Start Sunday

Quarterback Michael Vick practiced Friday for the first time since sustaining a rib cartillage injury in the team's loss to the Washington Redskins, but head coach Andy Reid said that Kevin Kolb will start this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Vick was a limited participant in practice and Reid said there's a chance that he could suit up in a backup role this week.

Reid ruled out both left tackle Jason Peters (knee) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow). King Dunlap will start in Peters' place and will be charged with protecting Kolb's blind side, while Bunkley's spot will be filled by a combination of Antonio Dixon and Trevor Laws.
