07:48 AM ET 09.13 | Another quarterback controversy in the City of Brotherly Love? Kevin Kolb? Michael Vick? "If Kevin Kolb is healthy, will he be your starter next week?" Andy Reid was asked after the Eagles' 27-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers yesterday. "Yes," said the Eagles' head coach. Ah, but what is healthy in the world of head trauma? Passing a verbal test? Both Kevin Kolb and Stewart Bradley did that Sunday, Reid said, or they wouldn't have been allowed back on the field long enough to become nauseous. ... If we have learned nothing else from the plights of Brian Westbrook, Keith Primeau, Eric Lindros and Simon Gagne -- did I leave anyone out? -- it is that we don't know what we don't know when it comes to concussions.

That was a VICIOUS hit he took... I saw it coming in slow motion, and knew it was over.Whoever that guy is for the Packers is a beast... Looks like Michael Myers.

Who was the guy on the eagles that took the hit, tried to get up and flopped to the turf again. Looked all confused. Scary moment.

C'mon Chico, you know who Clay Matthews is. Man, the shot of Kolb with the turf in his helmet was f'n classic. He'll remember that...assuming he remembers anything at all. LOL And the 'skins game - well, nothing to gloat over but we are 1-0.

That was Stuart Bradley, also listed with a concussion. He hit his own guy with his head.
