McNabb says he's disappointed for Vick and believes he should have the opportunity to play in the first game.
Vick will not be reinstated until the third game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 27. He can't practice with the team until he is placed on the roster.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Vick will travel with the team to Carolina. Reid also says Vick will watch practice.
Vick signed with Philadelphia on Aug. 13 and played in two preseason games.
