The Arizona Cardinals have a competition at quarterback this off-season, but they didn’t get a good look at Kevin Kolb during their first pre-season game against the New Orleans Saints.
After going 1-4 for four yards and an interception, Kolb was hit and injured. According to Kent Somers, the Cardinals reporter for the Arizona Republic, Kolb has a bruised muscle in the rib area and a bruised diaphragm. The good news here is that the Cardinals QB doesn’t have any broken bones.
In Kolb’s absence, backup John Skelton came in and completed four of six passes for 32 yards. Overall the Cardinals quarterbacks were not impressive. None of them were able to throw a touchdown and only Skelton was able to complete over 50 percent of his passes.
The injury to Kolb doesn’t appear to be serious. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said after the game that Kolb could possibly practice this week and play on Friday against the Chiefs.
