Found November 20, 2011 on Shutdown Corner:
  For the third straight week, the Arizona Cardinals have put their big-time quarterback on the bench, and at a certain point, that may be more about performance than injury. Kolb's toe was the original reason for Kolb's absence from the Cardinals' offense, but Skelton has been far more effective in the last two games. We'll see if Skelton can continue his efficiency against San Francisco's excellent defense. In other news, both of St. Louis' starting offensive tackles, Jason Smith and Rodger Saffold, will be out against the Seattle Seahawks — in fact, Saffold has been placed on injured reserve afte he tore a pectoral muscle during a weightlifting session. Also, the Atlanta Falcons will be without the services of receiver Julio Jones, and the San Diego Chargers will be without left tackle Marcus McNeill. Note to Norv Turner: Give backup tackle Brandyn Dombrowski some help on the left edge — he can't handle speed rushers on his own, and the Bears have two ...

QB Kevin Kolb inactive for Cardinals vs. 49ers

Kevin Kolb is inactive for the Arizona Cardinals for the third straight game with a right foot injury, and he's being replaced at quarterback by John Skelton against the San Francisco 49ers. A turf toe and a bruise on the side of his foot will keep Kolb sidelined again Sunday. He tested the injuries briefly in practice this week but complained of pain when he planted to throw...

No practice for Julio Jones on Friday

The chances of Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones playing against the Titans on Sunday are looking bleaker after Jones missed practice on Friday. He’s officially listed as questionable after reinjuring his hamstring in last week’s loss to the Saints, but it seems unwise to push him back onto the field so quickly if the team…

Cardinals' Skelton not ready for the spotlight

Monday would be a really good day for Kevin Kolb's foot to fully heal. The St. Louis Rams are on deck and the Cardinals 2-week-old quarterback controversy is over unless you're talking about the backup spot.

Skelton's dreadful game doesn't change QB status

Quarterback John Skelton's dreadful performance against San Francisco must make Arizona fans anxious for the return of Kevin Kolb. The trouble is, no one knows when that might happen. Kolb's right foot injury is showing slow progress, at best. Coach Ken Whisenhunt says Skelton will remain the starting quarterback if Kolb is forced to miss a fourth straight game when the...
