The Arizona Cardinals still do not know who their starting quarterback will be on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. But John Skelton better be prepared to start this week when they get ready to take the field.
Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb continues to struggle to move on his foot, which means that he probably won't be ready to go this week. Kolb was listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that he's definitely trying to practice and make his way back on the football field, but it doesn't look like he's totally all the way back. This will force Skelton back to action. Skelton has proven he can move the football down the field (even if the movement is inconsistent) and get the Cardinals into scoring position. Kolb might not provide a huge leap in talent regardless, so Skelton might be the best option this week until the starting Cardinals QB heals all the way back.
Here's a full list of Cardinals injuries.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE: TE Todd Heap (hamstring), TE Rob Housler (groin), LB Joey Porter (knee), S Kerry Rhodes (foot), RB Chris Wells (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE: CB Michael Adams (hamstring), LB Stewart Bradley (ribs), T Brandon Keith (knee), QB Kevin Kolb (toe), LB Paris Lenon (groin), RB Anthony Sherman (ankle), KR LaRod Stephens-Howling (shoulder)
