John Skelton is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a high ankle sprain. We break down the fantasy implications.

John Skelton is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a high ankle sprain suffered during Sunday's contest between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks, sources tell Pro Football Talk. Kevin Kolb entered the game after Skelton injured his ankle in the fourth quarter, and led the Cardinals on a game-winning touchdown drive.

Analysis: It appears that Kolb will hold the starting job at least through Week 3 when the Cardinals take on his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Kolb looked impressive on his one drive, going 6-for-8 passing for 66 yards including a six-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts. If he can continue playing well, Kolb could usurp Skelton for the starting job in Arizona. Don't rush just yet to pick him up off waivers in your fantasy league, however.
