Cardinals Vs. 49ers Injury Update: Kevin Kolb Leaves Game With Head Injury

The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers were just getting underway when both teams suffered blows. Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb was taken to the locker room with a head injury. His return is reported as "questionable". The 49ers lost starting LT Joe Staley with a head injury as well. He won't return.

Kolb apparently was kneed in the back of the head by 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks on a third down play in the first quarter. The play resulted in a fumble but the Cardinals recovered the ball.

Backup quarterback John Skelton entered the game in place of Kolb and went three and out on his first possession. Kolb was 1-1 for two yards before the injury which occurred on the Cardinals first offensive possession.

The Cardinals went 3-1 with Skelton starting in place of Kolb while he was sidelined with a foot injury. The only loss came against the 49ers.
