Donovan McNabb has already been ruled out of Friday's preseason game against the Jets with an ankle injury. Now, he is also pretty close to being ruled out of the team's final preseason game against the Cardinals next Thursday, as coach Mike Shanahan told reporters that chances are "slim" that McNabb will suit up.
However, it's worth noting that this may not be because of his injury. As Mike Jones of TBD notes, Shanahan doesn't like to play his starting quarterback in the team's final preseason game.
Donovan McNabb just used air quotes and stressed the word ''sprain'' when asked what the team told him about his injury. Funny. #Haynesworth
