McNabb to return against Bucs on Sunday

From The Associated Press:

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was back at practice Wednesday and says he'll be in the starting lineup when Philadelphia plays Tampa Bay on Sunday.

McNabb has been out since breaking his rib in the Sept. 6 season opener against Carolina. He missed two games before the Eagles had their bye this past weekend.

McNabb said Wednesday he expects to wear a protective jacket against the Buccaneers. He said he still feels some discomfort when he laughs, coughs or sleeps on his side, and doesn't expect to be fully recovered for another two to four weeks.

Coach Andy Reid said running back Brian Westbrook also should be able to play on Sunday. Westbrook sat out the Eagles' previous game with a knee injury.
