Kevin Kolb Injury Update: The Most Important Toe In Arizona Making Progress, Didn't Practice

The news about the most important toe in Arizona is mixed on Wednesday. Kevin Kolb didn't practice but did do some drills and individual work. He again reported progress but wouldn't say either way if he'll be able to play Sunday for the Cardinals when the team travels to Philadelphia to face the Eagles

"I don't know yet," Kolb said when asked about his status for the game. "I said before, we'll take it day by day and today was a step in the right direction for sure."

The main thing for Kolb continues to be mobility and ability to generate force on his throws. 

Kolb obviously wants to face his former team and definitely is doing everything he can to be ready.

"It would mean a lot (to play against the Eagles). Anybody can say they don't circle it on their calendar, but you do," Kolb said.

He said he has no idea how the typically hostile Philadelphia fans would respond to seeing him in a Cardinals jersey. 

Coach Ken Whisenhunt implied that he wants to see Kolb practice this week if he's going to play. With only Thursday and Friday left, we'll have to wait and see what happens. Kolb said he would decide tomorrow morning about that based on how the injury responds to work he did today.

Other injury updates

Whisenhunt said that Safety Kerry Rhodes was still at least several weeks away. Rhodes broke a bone in his foot and had surgery about a month ago. TE Todd Heap (hamstring) played a little bit last Sunday and should be cleared for a larger role this week. Rookie TE Todd Housler sounds like he will miss another week although nothing is official on that.
