PHILADELPHIA -- With Michael Vick still recovering from a rib injury, Kevin Kolb will make his third consecutive start for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Head coach Andy Reid said during his Wednesday press conference that Vick will see more practice time this week. Vick's progress this week will determine if he is the backup or third string signal-caller when Philadelphia takes on the Titans this weekend.

"Yeah, we'll give him a little bit more than what we did last week," Reid said. "We kind of fed him a few plays on the scout team last week, but we'll give him a little bit more and just see how he feels."

This past Sunday, Kolb completed 23-of-39 passes for 326 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Eagles' 31-17 victory over the Falcons. Kolb has three 300-yard passing games over his first five career starts. He is the first quarterback to accomplish the feat since Kurt Warner (1999).

The Eagles will likely be without star wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who suffered a concussion in a violent collision with Atlanta cornerback Dunta Robinson. As expected, Jackson did not practice on Wednesday.

"Again, DeSean, his discomfort is just where he took the blow on the right side, right shoulder area kind of up through the neck area. But he's working through that and he's sharp mentally and that whole deal, but he's very sore right now."

Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow), running back LeSean McCoy (rib), and tackle Jason Peters (knee) all missed practice on Wednesday.
