TEMPE, Ariz. -- The chances of quarterback Kevin Kolb returning this season for the Arizona Cardinals are looking far less likely. Kolb said Wednesday that he has hit a wall in his rehab process from cracked ribs that detached from his sternum. To be totally honest with you, the last couple weeks when I really try to push it in the weight room and when I really try to push the ball downfield is when Im kind of hitting that wall, Kolb said. Kolb said it's not so much pain that is holding him back as a lack of function. He also revealed that when the injury occurred, the ribs actually went under his sternum where they are calcifying, instead of lying flush with the sternum as in most people. Thats how theyre trying to heal, he said. Thats kind of what extends the process. Kolb later said he had no plans to correct the problem through surgery, and that he is still holding out hope he can return this season. Ive got to keep pushing, he said. Ive got to do it for myself; for my sanity. If I let it creep in just like before with all the questions weve answered about all the ups and downs if you let it creep in its going to take control of you. If I get the chance Im going to go out there and battle with them. HUSH HUSH ON HEAP Whisenhunt had little to say regarding the release of tight end Todd Heap on Tuesday. Its an unfortunate situation, Whisenhunt said. You hoped that it would work out, but it just didnt. Some times those just happen. When asked if the decision was mutual, Whisenhunt declined comment. SOME HOPE FOR SKELTON? Seahawks starting cornerback Brandon Browner will begin a four-game suspension Sunday for violating the leagues performance-enhancing drugs policy. Fellow starting cornerback Richard Sherman also is facing a potential four-game ban, but he is in the process of appealing and will play against the Cards. Walter Thurmond will replace Browner in the lineup. INJURY UPDATES For the Cardinals: WR Andre Roberts (ankle) and DE Ronald Talley (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. QB Kevin Kolb (ribs), RB Beanie Wells (knee), FS Kerry Rhodes (quadriceps), DE Calais Campbell (calf) and LB Reggie Walker (knee) were limited. For the Seahawks: CB Marcus Trufant (hamstring) and DE Red Bryant (foot) did not practice. WR Sidney Rice (concussion) and LB Leroy Hill (ankle) were limited. Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter
