Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb returned to the practice field today, apparently weeks ahead of schedule.
McNabb was not expected to return to live, on-field action for a few more weeks due to the knee injury he suffered last fall. According to ESPN.com, McNabb has been rehabbing vigorously since the injury and made his return to practice much earlier than expected.
This sounds an awful lot like the Daunte Culpepper saga last season. Culpepper was so set on returning to live action that he rushed his rehab and ended up missing more than half of last season, and serious health concerns still exist for Culpepper this spring.
It is no secret that McNabb was upset with the Eagles’ draft, which makes the situation reek of McNabb rushing to get back onto the field so he does not lose his job.
Hopefully I am wrong and McNabb is healthy and ready to go for week one this season.
