It was not a good first half for the Philadelphia Eagles. They lost reliable fullback Leonard Weaver to an awful-looking leg injury, and quarterback Kevin Kolb -- making his first start since the team traded Donovan McNabb -- did not play well.

Kolb didn't look comfortable in the offense, and he was hearing the boo-birds from Eagle fans at Lincoln Financial Field before the first half was over.

He also was dinged up on a hit by Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, and he did not start the second half.

Michael Vick took over at quarterback for Kolb, who has a concussion. On the play, Kolb was flushed out to his left, and he didn't sense Matthews running behind him. Matthews hit Kolb and forced a fumble that rolled out of bounds; Kolb appeared to hit his head on the ground pretty hard when he fell.

Kolb completed only five of ten passes for 24 yards in the first half, and he threw two passes that easily could have been intercepted. One was dropped by Charles Woodson as he hit the ground, and the other was dropped by Matthews after it hit him right in the hands.

Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley also left the game with a concussion and did not return for the second half.
