Whisenhunt says Kolb will play Friday

Five days after suffering a chest injury against the Saints, Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb will take the field again when Arizona faces the Chiefs.

Per the Associated Press, Kolb was limited in practice Tuesday with an injury that initially was called a rib contusion and that then was called a bruised chest and that now is being called bruised ribs.

He’s still a little sore,” Whisenhunt said.  “But I don’t anticipate there being any problems as we progress through the week.”

The Cardinals are working out with the Chiefs this week in advance of the game to be played at Arrowhead Stadium.

Kolb and John Skelton are battling for the starting job.  The winner could end up simply securing the privilege of being the first guy benched.

    Nobody outside of AZ cares. And that’s debatable.

  13. delusionalcardsfan says: Aug 7, 2012 10:38 PM

    I think that’s good news but the jury is still out.

    Good. I’m telling you Cards fans: Give him the season. If he sucks, then clamor to move on.

    Kolb needs a “Handle with Care” sticker on his chest. Dude is fragile.

    Man, the eagles have made out like bandits in dealing bum back-up qb’s. First, Feeley and now kolb.

  19. schmitty2 says: Aug 8, 2012 12:00 AM
