Donovan McNabb has started 19 career games vs. the Cowboys. On Sunday night, for the first time in burgundy and gold, he will make it 20.
McNabb said on Tuesday in an interview with a Washington radio station that he will start for the Redskins on Sunday. He had been questionable after hurting his left ankle in Week Two of the preseason. The six-time Pro Bowl QB said that he wasn't at 100 percent yet, but was recovering well. McNabb did not suffer a high ankle sprain as some outlets had reported, but, "it's very close to it."
The Redskins acquired McNabb in March in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. Sunday night also marks the first game in the Redskins career of head coach Mike Shanahan.
