There were no new injury updates Monday from coach Ken Whisenhunt, and that includes quarterback Kevin Kolb after Kolb suffered from concussion-like symptoms after being hit in the head by Ahmad Brooks’ knee.
“There are a number of different steps you have to go through, and obviously player safety is very important,” Whisenhunt said. “I don’t have a timetable on it.”
Whiz said Kolb “didn’t feel right” after the hit and the doctors took him inside the locker room. Originally, the plan was to hold Kolb out until the half to see if he would improve, but Kolb didn’t. (Kolb was downstairs riding a bike this morning.)
– Whiz talking postseason: “I know we are still alive. But I’m not going to get into scenarios or this or that. None of it matters if we don’t win this week, and that’s the approach we have taken the last six weeks, and it’s worked pretty good in five of them.”
– Center Lyle Sendlein gave Whiz a game ball yesterday (pic below) in recognition of Whiz tying Don Coryell for most wins in franchise history. “It was very nice,” Whisenhunt said. “It was meaningful our team did that, but it’s a team game and we are focusing on Cleveland.”
– Whisenhunt was asked about former offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who was fired as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs Monday. Whisenhunt said it was “premature” to talk about Haley possibly returning to Arizona. Calling Haley “a good friend” he said he believes Haley will have multiple options as coach going forward.
