The Arizona Cardinals suffered what could've been a serious blow in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game against the New Orleans Saints when quarterback Kevin Kolb hit the deck with an injury. Luckily for Arizona, the injury is just a rib contusion, which isn't serious.
This is just the first preseason game and if Kolb is healthy, he is going to put up a fight. Skelton was scheduled to start the next game with the first unit anyhow, so Kolb could potentially come in with the second team and shine. Skelton has shown issues with accuracy and decision making as well, so he will need to continue to show consistency to maintain the lead.
The position battle continues with the Cardinals traveling to Kansas City to practice with the Chiefs this week before Friday's game.

The Arizona Cardinals entered Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game hoping to find some answers on their quarterback question. Unfortunately, the first quarter was a microcosm of the prior season, with Kevin Kolb replaced early by John Skelton.
Kolb was tackled on the first play of the Cardinals third offensive drive. He has a rib contusion, and will not return to the game.
Kevin Kolb has rib contusion. Return is doubtful— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 6, 2012
Kolb entered the game as the favorite to win the Cardinals' starting quarterback job. He threw an interception on his first pass of the game, missing an easy read to make an ugly throw. He left the game 1-for-4 with an interception.
John Skelton replaced Kolb, offering the high five. He was rejected on the hand slap, as you might imagine.
