Kolb was injured when he was hit as he tried to complete a pass on a third-down play. He fumbled the football, but the Cardinals were able to recover. He was replaced by backup QB John Skelton, who incidentally through three interceptions in Arizona’s 23-7 loss to San Francisco just a few weeks ago.
This was Kolb’s second start after missing four games with a right turf toe and bruise to the same foot. No word yet on when or if Kolb will return.
This calls into question whether or not the Cardinals made a wise decision in trading for Kolb as part of being a successful NFL quarterback is the ability to stay on the field. That’s far this season, Kevin Kolb has been a major disappointment looking average at best and not the elite NFL passer the Cardinals envisioned when making the trade. It will be interesting to see what the Cardinals do this off-season with Kolb. Do they keep him and hope for the best are cut him and possibly save themselves millions and look for a QB elsewhere?
Whatever the Cardinals do one thing is clear, they need someone who can get the ball in Larry Fitzgerald’s hands and so far that task has been difficult for every person who has taken a snap in the Cardinals jersey since Kurt Warner retired.
