Eagles QB Kevin Kolb will start this week at Tennessee, as expected. And no surprise that WR DeSean Jackson is unlikely to play this week.
Falcons CB Dunta Robinson, who was fined $50,000 for his hit on Eagles WR DeSean Jackson that knocked both players out of Sunday’s game with injuries, is planning to appeal the fine.
