Kevin Kolb was hurt earlier this week but is expected to play Friday against the Chiefs. We look at the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb left practice earlier this week with bruised ribs, but was back on the practice field today and is expected to play this Friday against Kansas City. Coach Ken Whisenhunt called the injury minor and that he didn't anticipate any problems. Kolb is locked in a battle with second-year pro John Skelton for the starting position.

Analysis: Kolb and Skleton played sparingly in the Hall of Fame game against the Saints this past Sunday, with rookie Ryan Lindley getting the majority of playing time. Skelton did outplay Kolb in the game (4 of 6 for 32 yards compared to 1 of 4 for 4 yards and in interception for Kolb) but these next few weeks will play a pivotal part in who wins the job throwing to Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
