Teammates Expect Donovan McNabb To Play In Season Opener

It's still not clear whether Donovan McNabb's injured ankle will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season against the Cowboys, but for what it's worth, several of McNabb's teammates think he'll be ready.

Via Ryan O'Halloran of Comcast SportsNet:

"He's a fighter," receiver Devin Thomas said. "I'm sure he'll be ready."

Said linebacker Andre Carter: "For each man, when you get hurt, it's your decision. If he can go, he'll go. The Donovan we've known has always played through injuries. He sucks it up and is a tough quarterback."

McNabb has 22 days for that ankle, but Mike Shanahan continues to list him as being day-to-day. He will not play in the preseason game against the Cardinals Thursday.
