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 Cardinals play at St. Louis on Sunday.
Skelton had directed Arizona to two wins in a row before falling flat in the 23-7 loss to the NFC West-leading 49ers. He completed 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards and was intercepted three times before being replaced by Rich Bartel, who engineered the team's only touchdown drive.
BEST OF MAXIM
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.
As predicted, the San Francisco 49ers quieted all those irrational, reactionary, semi-informed voices calling for John Skelton to steal the starting quarterback spot...

QB Kevin Kolb's right foot injury must show considerable improvement if he's going to play Sunday in St. Louis.
Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt didn’t want to blame John Skelton compleltely for the team’s decisive loss to the 49ers on Sunday. But he did so anyway. “We didn’t play well enough offensively, especially at the quarterback position, to give us a chance against a good football team,” Whisenhunt said via the Arizona Republic. “If we…
Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb went through a substantial practice for the first time since his injury three weeks ago and says he is optimistic he will be able to play Sunday
at St. Louis.
As expected, San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore is active for Sunday's tilt against the Arizona, while the Cardinals will play a third straight week without quarterback Kevin Kolb.
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...
