Kevin Kolb injury update: Fantasy value zero with 'out' status

Christian Petersen

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is out for Sunday's match against the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is officially out for the team's game on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Kolb suffered a rib injury last week against the Buffalo Bills and missed practice all week. He has no chance of playing on Sunday.

John Skelton will replace Kolb as the Cardinals' quarterback against the Vikings. He missed the early portion of the season with an ankle injury suffered in the season's opening week.

Fantasy Impact: The Arizona Cardinals have been bouncing back and forth between quarterbacks due to injuries. The team is lucky it has two passable options at quarterback, because it will be tough for either one to stay healthy for long behind that terrible offensive line.

Skelton taking over does not make him a fantasy option, unless you are in a two-quarterback league. However, his presence under center should help this passing attack take a step forward.
