Kevin Kolb (turf toe) unlikely to play Sunday

K. Kolb might be sidelined by turf toe (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Where is Derek Anderson when you need him? That’s a joke, people, but now that it’s unlikely Kevin Kolb will play this Sunday for Arizona because of turf toe (that’s according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter), the Cardinals have to look at other quarterbacking options.

Like John Skelton, who showed some promise last season but ultimately produced a stat line that looked like this: five games, 47.6 completion percentage, two touchdowns, two interceptions, 62.3 quarterback rating.

So, that’s not particularly encouraging.

But to Kolb’s credit, he hates that turf toe is the injury that might keep him out of action.

"I remember Deion Sanders was the first one I ever saw that had 'turf toe,' and I was thinking the same thing as a fan: 'What? Why is (he) out for two weeks with a turf toe?'" Kolb said in a radio interview, via the Arizona Republic. "Then you get one and realize it's a little more painful than it comes across as."

The good news, though, is that Kolb is out of his walking boot and using an unlaced sneaker on his foot.

"He has come a long way in two days," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That thing was swollen and black and blue. It's going to be how much movement he can get back into it and if the swelling will go down."

In that radio interview, Kolb also said the turf toe moniker made him sound like a “weenie.” I’m not sure that’s true. But I do know this: using the term “weenie” makes him sounds like, well, a weenie.

Can anyone say they are surprised at how Kolb is doing?  Would love if Fitzgerald could find a real team to play for.  Could you imagine what he could do with a top 10 QB throwing to him?  Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson and Fitzgerald could be the best three receivers to play in the NFL at the same time.  I'm know the claim is debatable, but physically they could be three of the most gifted receivers of all time.

here's to hoping for a 1-15 record and get Andrew Luck...Kolb is an absolute joke.
Bartel will have a better shot against the Rams...unlike Kolb, HE can throw on the run.

This guy Kolb has NEVER done anything noteworthy in the NFL...there is absolutely NO reason anyone should expect anything out of him that they don't expect out of a Matt Hasslebeck, or a John Beck...or a Chad Henne. Philly knew what they were doing when they benched him and got rid of him. They knew from practices that he was going to amount to zilch...they were right...I honestly think that Derek Anderson actually WOULD be a better choice. Maybe they can trade some draft picks for Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn(Kolb clone). LOL

Skelton will do well as a fill in. He may actually have better pocket presence to be honest. He won't be lighting things up...but it is the Rams they are playing.

No joke twisted. And who has Fitz on his side. Looks like the experts were not very expert.......again.

So tell me again why TJack is joke and Kolb is the hottest FA?  Numbers look really similar to me.
