McNabb day-to-day with ankle, thumb injuries

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is being listed as day-to-day with a sprained ankle and injured thumb.

McNabb exited Philadelphia's 17-7 win over Miami in the second quarter after he hurt his right ankle. X-rays during the game were negative and McNabb spent the second half on the sidelines after jogging out of the locker room.

An MRI on Monday confirmed no serious damage.

Eagles coach Andy Reid also said McNabb injured his right thumb earlier in the game.

"I'm as worried about the thumb as the ankle because that's how he grips the football," Reid said at his Monday press conference.

Backup A.J. Feeley led the Eagles to a comeback win over the 0-10 Dolphins and will start against the unbeaten New England Patriots (10-0) if McNabb is unable to go.
