Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes will be held out of Sunday's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with the back injury that forced him to leave the previous week's game early.
Rhodes was carried off the field last Sunday with about five minutes remaining after taking a shot to his back and did not return. He is expected to replaced in the lineup by Rashad Johnson with the Cardinals' pass defense taking a huge blow in the deep middle of the field.
Quarterback Kevin Kolb has also been ruled out for this Sunday's game as expected. Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic confirmed on Wednesday that Kolb should miss "at least 6-8 weeks" with a number of injuries that include a sprained sternoclavicular joint, three detached ribs and a sprained shoulder.
As for players with the questionable tag, CB Michael Adams (hamstring), TE Todd Heap (knee) and LB Reggie Walker all have a 50-50 chance of playing. Of the three, Adams probably is the likeliest after turning in a full practice Friday.
