John Skelton Talking As If He’s the Starter for Sunday

There’s still a slim chance Kevin Kolb could return as the Cardinals’ starting quarterback Sunday, but judging from John Skelton’s comments Friday, it seems much more likely Skelton will make his fourth consecutive start instead according to Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic.

He talked about Sunday’s game at the St. Louis Rams as being another opportunity for him “to move forward” and how he was looking to “redeem” himself after a rough performance against the 49ers.

Unlike Skelton, Kolb didn’t talk to reporters Friday, which is one sign he still may not be ready to start. He was limited in practice Friday and the team listed him as questionable because of his injured right foot, which includes turf toe and a bone bruise.

“He’s worked through it every day and he’s been sore,” head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But getting the rust off was what was important this week and seeing if he would be able to play from a standpoint of practicing one day and seeing how it reacted the next day. The next thing for him, when we travel, is to see how it feels on the turf on Sunday.”
