Kevin Kolb suffered a ribs injury after going 14-for-26 passing for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills. John Skelton finished the game under center for Arizona, but went just 2-for-10 passing for 45 yards and a pick.
Kolb underwent X-rays following the loss, according to Kent Somers of AZ Central Sports. There is no official word yet on Kolb's status for next week and beyond as the team's starting quarterback.
Fantasy Impact: While we'll have to await word, the initial prognosis does not look good for Kolb. A shoulder injury obviously affects his ability to throw the ball. The injury is truly unfortunate, as the beleaguered quarterback had been playing well under center prior to Sunday's game.
While Kolb was arguably a viable QB2, Skelton should probably be left on fantasy waivers for now, even if he is named the long-term starter. Skelton was dismal when thrust into action Sunday, and didn't look great in his only start this season during the opener.
