Quarterback Kevin Kolb said during his weekly interview Tuesday on XTRA 910 that he is “touch-and-go” to practice tomorrow, but that he thinks he made a lot of progress this morning. He also has a bone bruise that “has shown its face” the last couple of days, which has complicated things. Regardless — and not surprisingly — Kolb really wants to play in Philadelphia and against his former team. Not only does he want to play the Eagles, but last week was the first time he wasn’t able to suit up, he said.
Reports on both ESPN and NFL Network both said he was unlikely to play against the Eagles. Kolb, at least publicly, is expressing slightly more optimism. “We’ll see what happens later on this week,” Kolb said.
As for the people who have embraced the idea of John Skelton playing and taking Kolb’s job permanently, Kolb said he understands after playing behind Donovan McNabb in Philly. “I was real popular for a long time,” Kolb said.
