Johnson Skelton threw for 149 yards and an interception before injuring his ankle in the fourth quarter. Kevin Kolb entered the game and led the Cardinals' on a game-winning touchdown drive, giving fantasy football owners something to think about for next week.

John Skelton went 14-for-28 passing for 149 yards and an interception before leaving Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks with a right ankle injury. Kevin Kolb entered the game for one drive in the fourth quarter and led the Cardinals to a game-winning touchdown, going 6-for-8 for 66 yards and a touchdown pass.

Analysis: One nice drive doesn't negate a disappointing preseason, so expect Skelton to remain at the helm of the Cardinals' offense. If Skelton can't return next week against the New England Patriots, Kolb could be a tempting waiver pickup, however. Fantasy owners iffy about their current QB could roll the dice and chance starting Kolb against a shaky New England Patriots' secondary. But while the move is viable, it really should be considered an emergency option only.
