The Philadelphia Eagles will start Kevin Kolb at quarterback in Sunday’s regular season finale.
Kolb took the first-team reps during this morning’s walk-through, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Due to last Sunday’s blizzard causing the postponement of their Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Eagles have a short week to prepare for this week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, which will have no playoff implications.
In addition to clinching the NFC East, the Eagles are locked in as the #3-seed in the NFC Playoffs and will face either the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, or Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card round.
Kolb opened the season as the starter, but was injured and replaced by Michael Vick, who has turned in an MVP-caliber season.
Overall, Kolb has four starts in 2010, and has completed 97-of-153 pass attempts for 1,035 yards with six touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and an 85.3 passer rating. The former second-round pick out of the University of Houston is signed through 2011, and could use Sunday’s start as a springboard to an off-season trade out of Philadelphia, who will likely sign or use the franchise tag on Vick.
Vick has a bruised quad, and could use a week off to get back to 100% for the playoffs.
