McNabb Returns to Practice

PHILADELPHIA — Donovan McNabb took a major step forward in his return from knee surgery, practicing with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday several weeks ahead of schedule.

The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback participated in non-contact drills in his first action on the field since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last Nov. 19.

Not sure this is a great idea to rush back. Ask Daunte how he is doing. It seems more conceivable for someone like Carson Palmer, who is rather stationery in the pocket anyway to come back more quickly, but mobility is such a part of McNabb’s success. One would hate to risk re-injury, especially given his history.
