Wednesday on ESPN, Eric Allen and Sal Paolantonio talked about Donovan McNabb’s shoulder tendinitis. It was originally reported by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday of this week. Sal especially seems to be very concerned about McNabb’s shoulder, and how he’s now sitting out, DESPITE a negative MRI. He wasted no time bringing up the fact that Kevin Kolb will be getting plenty of reps filling in for McNabb while he sits.
Andy Reid, on the other hand, has said that McNabb and the other injured players will be ready for the July 22nd start to camp.
So should we be concerned about McNabb? Or is this simply the media trying to make a story (and controversy?) where there isn’t one? My vote is the latter, and we’ll see a healthy, quick, and ready McNabb in Lehigh next month.
Donovan and Howard Eskin don’t seem to think it’s a big deal at all, as seen in this clip from NBC10 Sports Final:
Well you be the judge. Personally, it’s way too early for crap like this from the media. It’s only mid-June! Considering how good the Phillies are doing, I’m surprised this much attention is being paid to how a QB’s shoulder is feeling. Amazing.
