Quarterback Kevin Kolb said he continues to progress with his turf toe injury, and that, while last week was about reducing the swelling in the injury this week has been about rehab and trying to get back on the field. He has yet to get back to the field however, sitting out again Thursday and making a Sunday appearance in Philadelphia unlikely.
“I wouldn’t say he has to (practice), but I would like for him to,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said.
If Kolb doesn’t get in more reps by tomorrow, it doesn’t sound like he would have any chance to start. Whisenhunt said the only way Kolb would be a game-day decision would be if he was in a backup role. At issue remains his ability to drop and move and get around in the pocket. “What you don’t want to do is compromise his mobility,” Whisenhunt said.
The practice part is more about testing Kolb out physically rather than helping him mentally, Whisenhunt said. Kolb can handle that.
Whisenhunt was asked if there was a way John Skelton would retain the starting job after Kolb returned to health. “There is no real reason to comment on that,” Whisenhunt said.
In other injury news, both linebacker Paris Lenon (groin) and fullback Anthony Sherman (ankle) were upgraded to limited, while cornerback A.J. Jefferson was added to the injury report Thursday when he was limited with a foot injury. Cornerback Michael Adams (neck) was upgraded to full.
