NFL Week 4, Cardinals Vs. Dolphins: John Skelton progressing, limited in Wednesday practice

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is progressing well as he nurses his way back following a sprained ankle suffered in Week 1. He was able to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity.

Skelton was able to go through team drills and get in some 11-on-11 work, but is still experiencing pain when moving laterally. "The straight drop is fine," he said. "But that's not football." It is unclear at this point whether Skelton will regain his position as starter once he returns from injury due to the stellar play of Kevin Kolb.

Darnell Dockett is dealing with a hamstring injury and missed the entirety of the practice session. Running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (hip) and fullback Anthony Sherman (hamstring) were also absent.

The extended loss of Beanie Wells, who went to I.R. on Wednesday due to a turf toe injury is going to spread the Cardinals thin in the backfield and leave Ryan Williams with more responsibility moving forward. Williams will practice fully all week barring any setbacks.
