Injured Arizona Cardinals signal-caller John Skelton returned to practice yesterday. Skelton's participation in practice was limited though as he recovers from a low ankle sprain sustained in Arizona's season opening victory over the Seattle Seahawks. It has not been determined yet if Skelton will play in Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Glendale. If Skelton is deemed healthy enough to play, head coach Ken Whisenhunt would then have to decide who to start  - Skelton or Kevin Kolb, who performed very admirably against the Patriots last Sunday.

In other injury news, veteran tight end Todd Heap practiced on a limited basis yesterday as he recovers from a knee sprain suffered last week against New England. The odds right now are on Rob Housler starting on Sunday in his place. The Arizona brass is impressed with Housler's speed and upside.

Elsewhere, left outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield, the third-year veteran from Wisconsin, was also limited in practice due to a sore knee. He'll be in the starting lineup against Philadelphia though.

Win would give Cards '09-esque momentum

TEMPE, Ariz. -- When Larry Fitzgerald stepped onto the University of Phoenix Stadium field for the 2009 NFC championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the future was far from his mind.

Larry Fitzgerald was almost acquired by the Eagles

According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told him that back in 2008 the Philadelphia Eagles tried to acquire him by offering the Cardinals a first and third round pick in exchange for Fitzgerald.
