Kevin Kolb Injury: Arizona Cardinals QB May Sit Vs. Rams

When the St. Louis Rams travel to Arizona this week, they may not be facing Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb. The Cardinals' starter is dealing with a bout of turf toe. He suffered the injury in a loss this week to the Ravens.

Kolb was also sacked six times in that game, putting his season sack total at 25. The Cardinals traded a bevvy of draft picks for Kolb during the offseason, but forgot about filling in an offensive line in front of him. The results have been predictable, unlike the Rams' offensive line whose struggles are more inexplicable. The Cardinals do not know if Kolb will play this week. 

Kolb or not, it looks like a good matchup for the Rams, based on what we saw against the Saints this week. Chris Long and Robert Quinn were dominant in the pass rush, something that translates favorably for this week's game against the Cardinals. 

If Kolb cannot play, look for John Skelton to handle quarterback duties. If you remember, Skelton made his debut last season in week 13 against the Rams. He replaced a feckless Derek Anderson and an injured Max Hall in the fourth quarter of a 19-6 Rams' win.
