Kevin Kolb taking all the reps, Michael Vick likely out this week

Eagles coach Andy Reid hasn't been particularly decisive when choosing his starting quarterbacks this season, so he might feel a little relieved that for another week, Michael Vick's rib injury will take the decision out of Reid's hands.

CSNPhilly.com reports that Kevin Kolb will likely make his second straight start Sunday against the Falcons, as Vick hasn't been able to throw yet.

"We'll just see how he progresses this week," Reid said. "It's really a day-to-day thing. Kevin will take all the reps today."

The big question facing Kolb is whether he can play well enough to keep the starting job once Vick is healthy enough to play again. If Kolb has a big game on Sunday and the Eagles beat the Falcons, Reid may be tempted to keep Vick on the bench even if he's cleared to play a week from now.

But while Reid may have a tough decision next week, Vick's rib injury will make Kolb the starter this week by default.
