[Contra Costa Times] The Chiefs aren’t the only ones with a long list of injured players. Their opponents this weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles, have seen a season’s worth of injuries in the first three weeks of the season too.
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is playing with a sports hernia that likely will need surgery and will definitely cause him discomfort and pain all season.
McNabb is expected to start Sunday at Kansas City and is willing to play through his various injuries. He also is playing with soreness in his chest and a shin contusion.
“I’m ready to go,” he said. “Fortunately for me, I haven’t got to the point where you just can’t go. Once that happens, then I think the best way of handling this is not being out there. But I don’t think that would ever happen.”
McNabb was tested last week for the sports hernia, but coach Andy Reid called the injury an abdominal strain after the Eagles’ win over the Raiders last Sunday. McNabb went to Boston on Tuesday for another opinion, and it was confirmed he has a sports hernia.
