John Skelton Injury: Cardinals QB Will Miss 2-4 Weeks

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is expected to miss two to four weeks with an ankle sprain suffered in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 20-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that, according to his source, the situation remains in flux:

At one point on Monday, the thinking was that Skelton could be back by Week Three, when the Eagles come to town. Instead, it appears that Kevin Kolb will get the call when the Cardinals go to New England in Week Two, host Kolb’s Eagles the next Sunday, possibly the Dolphins in Week Four, and even on the high end face the Rams when the Cardinals go to St. Louis on a short week for Week Five.

Skelton's injury is now known to be a low ankle sprain, which is of less concern than the high variety. Kevin Kolb will start at least at New England when the Cardinals visit the Patriots in Week 2.
