Kevin Kolb will make his second straight start in place of the injured Michael Vick when the Philadelphia Eagles host Atlanta on Sunday.

Eagles coach Andy Reid says Vick practiced Friday for the first time since sustaining a rib cartilage injury on Oct. 3. There's a chance Vick will be the backup quarterback against his former team.

Kolb began the season as the starter, but lost his job after sustaining a concussion in Week 1 because Vick was sensational in his absence. Vick was the NFC offensive player of the month for September.

Kolb led the Eagles to a 27-24 win at San Francisco last week. He completed 21 of 31 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown.
