Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap is listed as day-to-day with a sprained PCL in his left knee. Heap suffered the injury during Arizona's 20-18 upset victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday in Foxboro. Heap is dealing with soreness in the knee and is not sure presently if he will be able to play in Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. If Heap can't go, Rob Housler will take his place in the starting lineup.
In other Cardinals news, quarterback John Skelton may miss at least another week with his low ankle sprain. Skelton is doing some light jogging but is not ready for contact drills. The Cardinals will not try and rush Skelton back too soon, especially the way Kevin Kolb performed last Sunday against the Patriots.

The Patriots looked out of sync offensively all game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, and it cost them, as the Cardinals surprised the Pats with a 20-18 win. According to an opposing coach, the New England offense played a hand in, well, slowing the New England offense.

Last week: 23 (+7)
The Cardinals are one of only 6 undefeated teams left in the NFL, but they’re by far the weakest of the bunch. They’ve been outgained in each of their first 2 games, but won anyway, and have a negative yards per play differential and are tied with Jacksonville for the worst yards per play rate at 4.2. They’ve got a nice defense, but I still don’t...

Darnell Dockett: Ay! Ay, Kobe! Let me talk at you a second.
Kevin Kolb: Kolb.
Kolb: My last name is Kolb. Pronounced cobb, like corn on the cobb.
Dockett: That right? Aw damn, that’s my bad, Kolb. Hey, I gotta tell you something. I know this Sunday means a lot to you. I heard you a Philly boy. That’s your hometown.
Kolb: I’m not actually from Philadelphia....
Playing a former team always gives players an extra bit of motivation in the week leading up to gameday. Playing a former team that also bailed on you as a player gives you even more of a kick in the rear.
This weekend, the Arizona Cardinals are matched up against the Philadelphia Eagles, Kevin Kolb's former team. Life hasn't exactly been easy for Kolb since being...
Since 2008, the Cardinals have blocked 15 kicks, more than any other team in the NFL. They've blocked so many, in fact, that they almost expect to make a big play every game. "It's a little bit like blood in the water for sharks," kicker Jay Feely said. "You get a little taste and you want more." There are a handful of reasons for the Cardinals success...
Philadelphia Eagles (2-0) at Arizona Cardinals (2-0)
Believe it or not, this is a matchup of 2-0 teams. Philadelphia being 2-0 isn’t that farfetched, but anyone who told you that they had Arizona starting 2-0, with a week 2 clash in New England on the schedule, is either lying or the biggest Arizona homer in the world or didn’t look at the schedule or some mix of all three. No...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By ROB MAADDI AP Pro Football Writer Kevin Kolb waited three years to replace Donovan McNabb as the starting quarterback for the Eagles only to keep the job just one half.
Two years later, he has a chance to prove they gave up on him too soon.
''I'm trying to prepare myself, make sure I'm not too excited, too hyped,'' Kolb...
WASHINGTON STATE COACH Mike Leach generally has an interesting way of stating his thoughts. Sometimes that requires clarification. Leach was asked about his “tent over circus” statement, his thoughts on the development of a defensive lineman and, of course, the Pac-12 story of the week – injuries – during Tuesday’s Pac-12 coaches conference call.

Attention Juan Castillo: Whatever you do this week, make sure Larry Fitzgerald's whereabouts are accounted for on every single snap he's on the field. And make sure you relay this to Nnamdi, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman as well.
In case you didn't realize, Larry Fitzgerald absolutely loves playing the Eagles. We all know he's one...
We are witnessing the first 2-0 start since 2004, two outstanding defensive displays, and the ablility to win games late. Except for turnovers and penalties, our Philadelphia Eagles gave us reasons for optimism against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. We saw big time use of the tight end Brent Celek, a balanced run and passing attack, sharp passing by Michael Vick, and solid...
