McNabb out with shoulder tendinitis

By John McMullen

(The Phanatic Magazine) - Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb will likely miss the rest of this week’s organized team activities with shoulder tendinitis.

“Donovan has slight tendinitis in his shoulder, very similar to what he had in 2004," head coach Andy Reid said. "We’re going to back off him just like we did in 2004, and he should be ready for training camp. There’s no surgery. There should be no repercussions from it. He’ll just get treatment for about two weeks here and then he’ll be ready to go.”

Kevin Kolb, the team's second-round pick last season, worked with the first-team offense. ahead of A.J. Feeley, in McNabb's absence.

McNabb hasn’t played an injury-free season since leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl in 2004. He missed the final seven games in 2005 with a sports hernia, sat out the last eight games, including playoffs, in 2006 with a torn knee ligament and missed two games last year with a sprained ankle and injured thumb.

“He’s going to finish this week up rehabbing," Reid added. Then he’ll get a little bit [of rehab] next week, and then he can go back (to Arizona). This isn’t a problem. There is no problem.”
