Reid: McNabb will start Thursday vs. Cards

Donovan McNabb will start when the Philadelphia Eagles host the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night.

The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback was benched for the first time in his career at halftime of Philadelphia’s 36-7 loss at Baltimore on Sunday. Second-year pro Kevin Kolb played poorly against the Ravens, and Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday he’s going back to McNabb.

The Eagles (5-5-1) are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the third time in four years since losing the 2005 Super Bowl.
