FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb sat out Tuesday's practice because of a bruised right thigh but says he will try to work out with the team on Wednesday.

Kolb says the injury isn't serious and won't affect his ability to play in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against New Orleans in Canton, Ohio.

Kolb was injured when he took a knee to the thigh late in practice on Monday.

Kolb will start Sunday's game but remains in a fight with John Skelton for the starting job. The players might alternate starts until coach Ken Whisenhunt decides who gets the job.
