Cardinals Vs. Eagles Inactive List: Kevin Kolb And Todd Heap Official Out

The Arizona Cardinals will officially be without starting quarterback Kevin Kolb for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That's really no surprise given his inability to practice at all this week. It will be the second missed game for Kolb who injured his toe and foot in Baltimore and hasn't played or practiced since. John Skelton will start.

More surprising for the Cardinals is TE Todd Heap. Heap was reportedly "very close" when he was sidelined against the Ravens with a hamstring issue. He then suited up against the Rams last Sunday but was very limited and hardly played at all. This week he was supposed to be much better but apparently suffered a setback and will miss another game this week.

The Cardinals are also again without rookie TE Rob Housler (groin). Housler also missed the Rams game. Without Housler and Heap the Cardinals are missing their two best pass-catching tight ends. Jeff Kind and Jim Dray will play.

The only good news on the injury front is the return of FB Anthony Sherman (ankle).

Other inactives for the Cardinals are OT D'Anthony Batiste, S Kerry Rhodes (foot), LB Joey Porter (knee) and WR Stephen Williams. 

Starting guard Evan Mathis is out with turf toe for the Eagles and we already know about WR DeSean Jackson being suspending for his sleep mistakes.
