In four seasons with Detroit, McMahon started seven games. He had a 43.8 completion percentage with 10 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions, but he ran for 273 yards on 46 carries.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Donovan McNabb will miss Philadelphia's game against the New York Giants on Sunday with a groin injury.

Mike McMahon, who had been the third-string quarterback, will get the start over backup Koy Detmer.

McNabb's status beyond this week is uncertain. He'll see a specialist Thursday.

"He's not moving around very well," coach Andy Reid said Wednesday.

McNabb re-injured his groin Monday night while trying to tackle Cowboys safety Roy Williams after he threw an interception. Williams returned the pick 46 yards for a touchdown with 2:43 left to lead Dallas to a 21-20 comeback victory over the Eagles.

McMahon nearly led Philadelphia to the winning score after coming in for the last series against Dallas. He drove the Eagles to the Cowboys 42 before David Akers missed a 60-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds.

.........

Detmer has been McNabb's backup the last six seasons. He is the No. 2 quarterback this year only because he holds the ball on extra points and field goals.

McNabb has played through several injuries this season, including a sports hernia that will require surgery. But the five-time Pro Bowl selection clearly isn't the same quarterback he's been.

McNabb has thrown a costly interception in each of the last three games, and has nine picks this season. He threw eight interceptions last year when he became the first player in NFL history to throw more than 30 touchdown passes (31) and fewer than 10 interceptions.

Overall, McNabb has passed for 2,507 yards, 16 TDs and has a passer rating of 85.0.

Re: McNabb sidelined; MCMahon to start against Giants

He wasn't horrible in Detroit. I picked him up as a bench guy on my fantasy team just in case lol.

This is a good move, hopefully McNabb gets the surgery now, so he's ready by the start of the mini-camps. The more McNabb plays this season the worse off he's going to be.

McNabb might as well just get surgery now. The Eagles have no shot at winning their division and wild card. This way McNabb won't be at risk for further injuring himself.
