Cardinals Vs. Rams Injury Update: Kolb And Bradford Both DNP, Wells Limited

The Arizona Cardinals might have been hoping for more progress on Kevin Kolb's toe and foot injury but he didn't make enough progress to allow him to practice on Thursday. Kolb was out of the walking boot, which he didn't have on Wednesday either, but was observed limping on Thursday which calls into question his availability for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.

The official line from the team was (and likely will remain) that a decision won't be made until Sunday. The injury, while sounding benign with the name "turf toe", is a fairly serious sprain to the toe and foot that limits Kolb's ability to generate power on this throws.

Beanie Wells was upgrade from not practicing on Wednesday due to his on-going knee issue to "limited" status on Thursday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated on Wednesday that this would be a normal process for Wells who he called a "tough sucker" for playing through the injury.

Other injury holdouts from practice on Thursday include Rob Housler (groin), Anthony Sherman (ankle), and Kerry Rhodes (foot). It's unlikely any of those guys will play on Sunday. Joey Porter (knee) was also limited.

For the Rams, QB Sam Bradford (ankle) was technically a non-participant in practice on Thursday but according to local report, he did throw the ball in individual drills but didn't participate in any team work.
