PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Donovan McNabb will not practice Wednesday because of ankle and thumb injuries, and it's uncertain whether the five-time Pro Bowl quarterback will play for the Eagles against New England on Sunday.
``You want to be smart, but you want to get out there and play,'' McNabb said.
McNabb hurt his thumb early in Philadelphia's 17-7 win over Miami, and left the game after he sprained his right ankle in the second quarter. A.J. Feeley led the Eagles to a pair of touchdowns and would start against the Patriots if McNabb can't play.
Coach Andy Reid said McNabb's ankle swelled up Tuesday. A day earlier, it seemed the thumb injury was more of a concern.
``Right now the ankle is a little more swollen than the thumb,'' Reid said. ``We'll take it day by day and see how he goes.''
