Kevin Kolb Injury: Cardinals QB Could Miss Week 11, Too

QB Kevin Kolb is considered doubtful for the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11 when they take the field against the San Francisco 49ers, Jason La Canfora reports. Kolb has missed two consecutive games with a myriad of injuries including ligament damage, a bone bruise and turf toe.

Kolb's season has been far from a success and even before his injury we heard the locals calling for backup QB John Skelton. The Cardinals have won two straight with Skelton under center after losing six in a row with Kolb so another win from Skelton and we'll be hearing more talk of a quarterback controversy. (For what it's worth, head coach Ken Whisenhunt says there is no quarterback controversy right now.)

In two games this year, Skelton has 537 yards passing and four touchdowns to two interceptions. He's not lighting the world on fire but the Cardinals have beaten the Rams and Eagles in those games.

Kolb, on the season, has completed 56.8 percent of his passes for 1,706 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions leading the Cardinals to a 1-6 record.
