Kevin Kolb had a forgettable start to the Arizona Cardinals quarterback competition on Sunday night, culminating with a bruised chest muscle injury suffered against the Saints during the Hall of Fame game.
Kolb was intercepted by Malcolm Jenkins on Arizona’s initial drive. Then, Saints defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis smashed the Cardinals quarterback into the turf on the following march, causing the injury.
Overall, Kolb finished 1 of 4 for 4 yards and an interception.
John Skelton, Kolb’s primary competition, made a strong push by leading the Cardinals to their lone touchdown while completing four of six passes for 32 yards in the 17-10 loss.
Since he was named Philadelphia’s starting quarterback prior to the 2010 season, Kolb’s seasons have been derailed by injury.
If he wants to make something of his time in Arizona, Kolb better stay out of the Whirlpool.

Kevin Kolb has not exactly had the best luck since he was traded to the Cardinals from Philadelphia, and the tough times continued during Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game against the Saints. Kolb, who started off the game by throwing an interception on his first pass attempt, was injured on the Cardinals’ third offensive series when he was hit by Saints defensive lineman Sedrick...
Being a backup might not be so bad.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb left the Hall of Fame game with a rib contusion after an embarrassing performance, including an 0-1 opening drive in which he only threw an interception.
At this point, it has become clear that John Skelton should be the quarterback for the 2012 season. A promotion is certainly in order.
NFL training camp is all about feeling the burn, getting familiar with the plays and interacting with the fans that show up to watch open practices. Last week, a dad and mom brought their little girl to the Arizona Cardinals camp. After practice, second-year linebacker Sam Acho headed over to greet fans and sign autographs. Acho was an All-Big 12 linebacker for the University...
One of the more lasting images from last night's NFL Hall Of Fame preseason game was Arizona Cardinals linebacker Stewart Bradley's sack dance in the first quarter of play.
Watch as Stewart busts out "The Carleton" and adds his own flavor at the end:

The Arizona Cardinals have been oddly obsessed with un-proven QB Kevin Kolb. He suffered yet another injury Sunday night in the Hall of Fame game. It opens the door for John Skelton, the lightly regarded but hugely clutch third-year QB: six game-winning drives with just 11 career starts.....
Let me preface this piece by stating that this is purely speculation on my part, but I believe that Kevin Kolb may have just pulled into second place on the depth chart at quarterback for the 2012 Arizona Cardinals.
Even though Kolb has been announced as the early number one quarterback on the roster, the opportunity for John Skelton to steal the job was always there. And even though...
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have removed running back Beanie Wells from the physically unable to perform list, clearing him to begin practicing with the team.
Wells has been unable to practice since undergoing knee surgery after last season. Wells rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season despite being bothered by the sore knee.
The Cardinals are at the Kansas...
Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt said that quarterback Kevin Kolb (ribs) should be able to practice this week.Fantasy Spin:Round 1 of the Kolb versus John Skelton battle for the starting job in Arizona went to Skelton. Kolb was 1-for-4 for four yards and an interception before leaving the Hall of Fame exhibition game after being hit by Sedrick Ellis.
You know whats sillier than NFL preseason games? A good chunk of the people who cover them.
Lets review. Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb threw an interception on his first pass and got hurt on his fourth and final pass of Sundays 17-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. John Skelton led the Cards on their only touchdown drive of the first half...
PULLMAN -- The theme of the day for the Cougs: Tenacity. A couple good “fights” in the trenches got the team riled up for most of Monday afternoon. There’s some clarity from Mike Leach on Rickey Galvin’s position, and Marquess Wilson shined. How about the kicking and punting game, and who is emerging in the return game and at the gunner spots? That and much more in today’s...
