Kolb and Skelton Split Reps in Camp

The battle for the Cardinals starting quarterback job has entered its crucial final phase with Kevin Kolb and John Skelton splitting reps in the first workout of training camp.

By all accounts, it’s a friendly rivalry with no animosity apparent between two players with low-key personalities, and coach Ken Whisenhunt insists it’s an open competition, that neither player has an edge, despite the big investment the franchise has made in Kolb.

Whisenhunt has given no hint of when he will announce the winner.

Kolb was 2-6 as a starter last year, missing much of the season with a turf toe and later a concussion. Skelton was 6-2 in his absence, but much of the credit for that success goes to the team’s vastly improved defense.
