In the midst of all the quarterback discussion, Kevin Kolb said during his weekly radio show on XTRA 910 that he went on the field briefly today to test out his bad right foot and that he planned to try and practice Wednesday on a limited basis — at least attempt to do some individual drills. He is admittedly frustrated with his injuries, saying that it seems to improve for three or four days and then there is a “lull.” After another few days, soreness creeps in that he thought would be gone by now.
His attempt to go on the field Tuesday– in tennis shoes, but taped up like he’d go into a game — went OK. “It was about where I thought I would be,” he said after taking some drops although he acknowledged the injury would still “grab” him whenever he moved a lot. He is hurting on three different spots in his foot, Kolb said, and it prevents him to compensate for the turf toe on his plant foot.
In the meantime, Kolb said he hasn’t had any conversations with coach Ken Whisenhunt about his starting position (Of course, why would he at this point) and that he is rooting for Skelton (“He has done a great job and I am happy for him”) and the team, enjoying this two-game winning streak as much as anyone. It hurt, understandably, to not be able to play in Philadelphia — although he said he was bellowing tips to the defense from the sidelines some of the times the Eagles were on offense.
He wants to play again, though. “I am just anxious to get back on the field and prove what I can do,” Kolb said.
