Donovan McNabb Also Likely To Sit Out Final Preseason Game Against Cardinals

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.

For his part, McNabb said he is hopeful his ankle will be healed by the Arizona game. He also used a bit of humor when discussing the injury.

Donovan McNabb just used air quotes and stressed the word ''sprain'' when asked what the team told him about his injury. Funny. #Haynesworth
