QB Kevin Kolb Returns Practices ‘A Little Bit’

Quarterback Kevin Kolb said he was able to practice “a little bit” on Wednesday after tests evaluating the concussion he sustained early in Sunday’s victory over San Francisco.

“The symptoms are down,” he said. “It’s just a matter of making sure they are down long enough to where I can get out there and then be in full-speed action. That’s the key right now. It’s a touchy subject, and we want to make sure that we err on the right side.” Unlike the situation with the Cleveland Browns and their quarterback, Colt McCoy, the Cardinals benched Kolb after he took a knee to the head on Arizona’s third offensive play against the 49ers.

He immediately went to the locker room for evaluation and it was determined he should not return to the game. “I don’t know how they handled it in Cleveland,” Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “All I can speak about is the way our guys did it and they did a great job with it. … The number one thing is, if there is ever a doubt, you err to the side of caution and that’s the way we are going to proceed.” Kolb said he plans to practice more as the week goes on in hopes of being able to play Sunday against the Browns.
