Quarterback Kevin Kolb will remain inactive another week with his toe/foot injuries, so — as expected — John Skelton will start with Rich Bartel as the backup. The Cardinals will have tight end Todd Heap back, although how much will have to be seen. He was active the last game against the Rams and only played a couple of plays. Fellow tight end Rob Housler remains out. Tackle Brandon Keith is active, but after his concussion, it will be veteran Jeremy Bridges starting on the right side.
Fullback Anthony Sherman finally returns to the starting lineup, with Reagan Maui’a inactive.
Besides Kolb, Housler and Maui’a, the rest of the Cards’ inactives today:
- WR Stephen Williams
- S Kerry Rhodes (foot)
- LB Joey Porter (knee)
- T D’Anthony Batiste
One other good nugget: Fox play-by-play man Sam Rosen is working his fourth Cards’ game of the year today. In each of the previous three, Patrick Peterson has a punt return for a touchdown. So take that for what it’s worth (which is coincidence, but still, a fun fact.)
