NcNabb out with thumb, ankle; Feeley gets start
PHILADELPHIA -- Donovan McNabb was inactive for the Eagles' game against Seattle on Sunday because of a sprained ankle and injured thumb.
A.J. Feeley got his second consecutive start. Feeley is coming off a strong outing in a 31-28 loss to New England in which he had career bests in completions (27) and yards passing (345) and threw for three touchdowns. But he also had three interceptions, including one that was returned for a score.
McNabb has been sidelined since spraining his right ankle and injuring his thumb in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 18.
Since leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl three years ago, McNabb hasn't played a full season. He missed the final seven games in 2005 with a sports hernia and sat out the last eight games, including playoffs, last season with a torn knee ligament.
Overall, the Eagles are 14-9 in games McNabb has missed because of injury since he became the starter in Week 10 of his rookie year in 1999.
