PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Donovan McNabb didn't practice Thursday, and the quarterback's availability for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend against the NFC West-leading Seattle Seahawks is still in doubt.
McNabb has been sidelined since spraining his ankle and thumb in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 18. Listed as day-to-day, McNabb said Wednesday his ankle and thumb had improved and he was closer to getting back on the field than he was a week ago.
Coach Andy Reid said McNabb is his starting quarterback when he gets healthy, but that the QB's ankle was puffy and tender Wednesday, a day after a tough workout.
Reid said McNabb's ankle was more sore than his thumb and that he was trying to get to the point where he could ``push off'' on the ankle.
That didn't happen Thursday, as backup A.J. Feeley worked with the first team.
``I've gotten a better sense of timing with the guys,'' Feeley said. ``It's more of an advantage to get reps with the (first-teamers).''
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.
