Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton may not return to the practice field this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton may not practice this week, coach Ken Wisenhunt said on Monday. Skelton, who missed Sunday's game because of ankle injury, is walking around but is not yet able to move the way he would need to in the pocket. Kevin Kolb started on Sunday and helped the Cardinals beat the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Kolb is certainly making the most of his chance after leading the Cardinals on a game-winning drive in Week 1 and doing enough to beat the Patriots in Week 2. Even if Skelton starts to practice, it would be hard to imagine the Cardinals going away from Kolb with the team at 2-0. For fantasy owners, however, Kolb is still a No. 2 fantasy quarterback until the team decides what to do with Skelton.
