We are very likely looking at a battle of the backup quarterbacks in Arizona today. Cardinals starting quarterback Kevin Kolb is not expected to play today against the St. Louis Rams. Kolb is dealing with turf toe and life behind a porous offensive line. John Skelton would start in his place.
St. Louis will put Sam Bradford through a pregame workout to see if he can play today. He is still dealing with a high ankle sprain, and the Rams have been cautious with the richest first pick in the history of the NFL draft. After last week's game against the Saints, the Rams have every reason to think that they can get by one more week with A.J. Feeley.
Yes, A.J. Feeley and John Skelton...feel the excitement.
Skelton played in five games last year. He completed 60 of 126 passes, 47.6 percent, with two touchdowns and two interceptions during that time. Running back Beanie Wells will be at the center of Arizona's offensive game plan, but with Larry Fitzgerald in the mix, don't count out their passing game entirely.
