Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt says there is no reason to even address a potential decision at quarterback as long as Kevin Kolb is injured.
Backup John Skelton has had two uneven performances, but they were both victories. On Sunday, he led Arizona to a 21-17 win in Philadelphia, where the big second-year pro overcame two interceptions to direct three long drives that each ended with a touchdown pass.
Kolb was acquired in a trade with Philadelphia and signed to a five-year, $63 million contract — $21 million guaranteed — as the Arizona's quarterback of the future. The game in which he was injured was Arizona's sixth loss in a row. Kolb has not practiced for two weeks.
The Cardinals play at San Francisco next Sunday.
