The door on Kevin Kolb starting Sunday’s game against the Rams appears to be closing.
Kolb was listed as doubtful by the Cardinals on Friday, making it quite likely that John Skelton will get his first start of the season at quarterback. Kolb is battling turf toe and missed a third straight practice on Friday. Darren Urban of the Cardinals website quotes Skelton as saying that Kolb playing remains a “possibility,” but Urban thinks it would be an upset if Skelton isn’t under center.
The Cardinals have three other players listed as doubtful for the Rams game. Linebacker Joey Porter, tight end Rob Housler and fullback Anthony Sherman. Running back Beanie Wells and tight end Todd Heap are questionable and the Cardinals are hopeful that each of them will be able to play on Sunday.
