Kevin Kolb Could Miss Sunday's Game Against Eagles

Tuesday November 8th, 2011

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb may not start in Sunday’s game against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, according to

Kolb has a sprained foot and a turf toe injury that he suffered from a loss against the Baltimore Ravens two Sundays ago. The quarterback is listed as day-to-day and the team will reportedly make a determination of his ability to play later this week.

The 27-year-old started seven games in four years for the Eagles prior to being traded to the Cardinals this offseason.  In seven starts this season, he has passed for 1,706 yards and has thrown eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Backup John Skelton will start again this weekend if Kolb is not cleared to play.  Skelton led the Cardinals to an overtime win over the St. Louis Rams this past Sunday and completed 20 of 35 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown in the victory.
