PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb has returned to practice and is expected to start Sunday when the Eagles host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

McNabb has been out since breaking his rib in the season opener. He missed two games before the Eagles had their bye this past weekend.

The 11-year veteran was injured scoring a rushing touchdown Sept. 6 in a win over the Carolina Panthers.

Kevin Kolb started in place of McNabb the past two games. He will return to his role as the No. 2 quarterback. Michael Vick is also expected to dress against the Bucs.
