Eagles QB McNabb says he'll play against Bucs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was back at practice Wednesday and says he'll be in the starting lineup when Philadelphia plays Tampa Bay on Sunday.

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.

McNabb said Wednesday he expects to wear a protective jacket against the Buccaneers. McNabb says he still feels some discomfort when he laughs, coughs or sleeps on his side. He doesn't expect to be fully recovered for another two to four weeks.

Coach Andy Reid says running back Brian Westbrook also should be able to play on Sunday. Westbrook sat out the Eagles' last game with a knee injury.
