Coach Mike Shanahan said quarterback Donovan McNabb (ankle) and fullback Mike Sellers will both miss Friday's game against the New York Jets.

We'll have more on this shortly.

Saw THAT comin'.

What bothers me is why didn't you pull McNubbin after that first hit he came up gimpy on Friday? They let him get hit at least 3 more times.

MORE O LINE NOW!!!

"...And before he threw that pic Gross(man) had a really nice drive going."

Bears' fans will tell you that what you've described is Rex being himself, not some abberation.

Smart move he doesn't need to play anymore at all this pre-season you know what you are going to get from McNabb.

Well, hopefully, this means we will see all three of the other quarterbacks getting some playing time. I guess the guy who draws the shortest straw gets the backup offensive line. Oh, and if any of them are reading, I think Will Robinson's nickname should be "El Matador".

Quick, somebody phone the Raiders.

BA: Hey Colt, you know the stakes. You know the playbook. You know the players.

It's the third game of the pre-season -- it's your annual opportunity to shine.

Hey Colt, you still there? Colt, Colt? Where are you, you big lunkhead.

Come on, Colt,.... quit fooling around already!

Hey Operator, could you get me the number for Todd Collins?

That's T O D D...

"Smart move he doesn't need to play anymore at all this pre-season you know what you are going to get from McNabb."

Yeah really.

I just hope it's not something worse then a sprain.

this doesn't exactly help the assessment of the WRs. Guess Friday will be a run-focused offense.

duh, i reported that last thread

I imagine most of us expected this. Grossman's weakness is the picks, of course, but on the other hand he's a good passer with a lot more familiarity with this offense than McNabb. I'd expect Ryan to throw the blitz book at him, which is actually good practice for the Skins. If you can get past clubs that are playing as if it's already the stretch run -- like Baltimore, the Jets, and Tennessee -- you should be prepared for whatever Dallas comes up with.

Oh great.. the game where starters are supposed to play like 3 quarters... so what happens in the 4th game then??

Not looking forward to Grossman and Beck playing the entire game. This one's gonna be a snoozer.

Has anyone stated just what Donovan's injury is? Sprain? Bad contusion? Stress fracture?

Speaking of QBs, that guy Nate Davis from SF looked extremely good in that game against the Colts this past weekend.

4th, how do you like the Android? If you know, how does it compare to the Iphone?

When all is said and done, this game is meaningless.

I wanted Coach Shanahan to sit McNabb anyway, ankle problem or no ankle problem.

McNabb knows what he's doing and I want him 100% for Dallas, which he will be.

This game should be about throwing a heavy dose of running at NY.
