Playing his first game since tearing a knee ligament last
November, McNabb put on an aerial display in the first quarter of
tonight's Philadelphia Eagles' preseason game against the Carolina
The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback completed six of nine passes
for 138 yards, including a 58-yard strike to tight end Matt
Schobel. He led the Eagles to 10 points on four possessions, before
giving way to backup A.J. Feeley.
Wearing a bulky protective brace on his surgically repaired
right knee, McNabb hardly needed to escape the pocket. He was
flushed out to the right once and threw an incomplete pass. On his
final play, McNabb was sacked by Stanley McClover and Thomas Davis.
He got right up and walked to the sideline.
Overall, it was an impressive return for McNabb, who went down
in Week 11 last season against the Tennessee Titans.
