The last time Michael Vick played the Redskins, he wasn't able to finish what he started. Vick was injured at the end of a long run and did not return in a 17-12 Washington victory over Philadelphia.

Now, six weeks later, Vick has recovered and returned to the starting quarterback role for the Eagles. Last week, he led Philadelphia to a 26-24 victory over the Colts.

On the other side, former Eagles and now Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is coming off a benching at the end of Washington's 37-25 loss to the Lions two weeks ago. Questions still remain about McNabb's fitness for this Monday night rematch with the Eagles.
