Fantasy Football Champs:
Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts was Arizona's leading rusher Sunday, taking one carry for 15 yards. He also caught five passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:Roberts isn't much of a fantasy option but this should tell you how weak Arizona's running game is. Sit both Beanie Wells (7 carries-14 yards) and Ryan Williams (8-9) for now.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Adrian Wilson had an agenda when he reached the postgame podium Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.
I want to talk about Kevin Kolb, Wilson said. Lets talk about how poetic that was.
Those who watched the entirety of the Cardinals 20-16 victory over the Seahawks might have chosen a different term. But Kolbs relief effort in place of injured starter John...
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals believe quarterback John Skelton has a high ankle sprain and are hoping it’s nothing more serious.
Cardinals are hoping Skelton has only a high ankle sprain. But sounds like it could be more serious

I wonder how safe Skelton’s job is after Kevin Kolb came into the...
It appears that Beanie Wells is still the starting running back, at least in the eyes of the man who matters most -- Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt said Ryan Williams only started in Week 1 because of Wells' hamstring issues, "nothing more than that."Fantasy Spin:Neither Wells nor Williams is a fantasy option at this point. Both backs are dealing with nagging...
There's good news and bad news for Arizona Cardinals fans. On the bright side, the Cardinals got the win in their season opener against the Seahawks. On the down side, the Cardinals' quarterback situation is still up in the air.
After John Skelton was put out the game with an injury, Kevin Kolb entered the game without any first team work this week. It didn'...
Arizona Staff Says Skelton’s Injury Isn’t Too Bad -
If you were watching the Seattle at Arizona game on Sunday and saw the look of agony and pain on Cardinals QB John Skelton’s face when he went down late in the fourth quarter, you were most likely thinking that he’d suffered a very serious injury. Skelton’s right ankle was quickly placed in an air cast and he was taken...
It looked a lot worse when it happened.
Fortunately for John Skelton and the Arizona Cardinals, the quarterback's injury is not as bad as first feared. Skelton was hit hard and fell to the ground yesterday in the fourth quarter in Arizona's 20-16 victory over Seattle. Early indications were that Skelton had suffered a high ankle sprain. However, according to the...
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald grabbed four balls for 63 yards Sunday.Fantasy Spin:John Skelton completed just two passes to Fitzgerald before exiting with an injury in the fourth quarter. Kevin Kolb took over and his first two completed passes were to Fitzgerald. Even if Skelton is healthy next week, we're on Team Kolb now. Just get Fitzgerald the ball!
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Kevin Kolb lost his job and with it, probably a lot of confidence, too. But if he did, he didn't show it Sunday when he was pressed into action for the Arizona Cardinals. John Skelton, who beat out Kolb for the starting quarterback job despite making just $500,000 compared to the $20 million the Cardinals have already invested in Kolb in a little more than...
No one in Arizona had much use for Kevin Kolb during the preseason, but they’re loving him now. Kolb came off the bench when John Skelton was carted off with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals were trailing 16-13 at the time, but Kolb calmly led them down the field and hit Andre Roberts with a six-yard [...]
The Arizona Cardinals have been picked by many experts to be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season. Their basis is just, they say the Cardinals will struggle because of their long QB battle this offseason that resulted in John Skelton eventually beating out Kevin Kolb. Now that the team has their [...]
Kevin Kolb may have played the role of hero on Sunday afternoon for the Arizona Cardinals, but thoughts after the game were not focused on Kolb's comeback 20-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks. They were on what enabled Kolb to enter -- and win -- the game: John Skelton's right ankle.
Skelton was injured midway through the fourth quarter with the Cardinals trailing 17-13...
The 2012 NFL season kicks off for the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow afternoon in Glendale against the Seattle Seahawks. The Cardinals lead the overall series, 14-12. How ready are the Red Birds? Let's take a look at some concerns for head coach Ken Whisenhunt's squad as they prepare to meet their NFC West rival:

Here are the Cardinals inactives today:
QB Ryan Lindley, WR LaRon Byrd, CB Greg Toler, RB William Powell, LB Jamaal Westerman, G Senio Kelemete and T Pat McQuistan.
The Cardinals have only four receivers active today. That's one fewer than normal. The Cardinals can afford to do this because they all four tight ends are healthy. Source: Arizona Republic Attached Thumbnails
