Kevin Kolb Injury Update: No Practice Thursday, Could Be Backup This Sunday?

As the Arizona Cardinals get ready to take on the Philadelphia Eagles back East this Sunday, quarterback Kevin Kolb talked to the media at Cardinals practice on Thursday to discuss the status of his turf toe injury and the possibility of him playing this Sunday in the City of Brotherly Love.

Kolb said his foot has made a drastic improvement but no practice today. Also a chance he could be backup Sunday

Kolb undoubtedly would like to lace 'em up to take on his former squad, noting that his pain-tolerance may be higher than usual do to who the competition is. And seeing that no one really knows what a 'drastic improvement' means, the situation is still very fluid and will likely change day-to-day; though Adam Schefter's tweet earlier today leads me to believe that Kolb is a no-go regardless.

Some feel that John Skelton will do fine against the Eagles, and that Kolb won't even be needed. But If Kolb can suit up, even as the backup to Skelton, that could be a huge plus for Coach Whisenhunt and the rest of his squad.
