Kevin Kolb is expected to miss several weeks after injuring his ribs during the Arizona Cardinals' loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kolb reportedly had multiple ribs detach from his sternum, and suffered a sprained sternoclavicular joint in his chest area.
Kolb was forced to leave Sunday's game after taking a hit late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss. He was replaced by John Skelton, who went just 2-for-10 passing for 45 yards and an interception after being thrust into action.
Fantasy Impact: Kolb's injury sounds absolutely brutal. Considering the pressure he has been under lately, it's not surprising that he was eventually forced to the sideline. The Cardinals have given up a league-high 28 sacks this season, 23 of which came over the last three games.
Skelton will take over the offense for the time being. He should be better than his numbers from Sunday suggest, but he still shouldn't be considered a starter in standard one-quarterback fantasy formats unless extenuating circumstances have you absolutely desperate. This week's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings is a bad one.
