Arizona's Kolb practices on limited basis
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, testing his injured right foot with some football moves for the first time since he was hurt three games ago.
Kolb says "gingerly" is a good word to describe how he moved in the workout. He has missed two games with a turf toe and a bruise on the side of the foot. Combined, the injuries cause pain when he plants to throw and when he moves around.
Backup John Skelton has helped the team to two victories in Kolb's absence. Skelton, in his second NFL season, is 4-2 as a starter. His two fourth-quarter touchdown passes led Arizona to a 21-17 victory at Philadelphia on Sunday, snapping the Cardinals' 11-game road losing streak. Arizona is at NFC West leader San Francisco next Sunday.
