There was nothing different on the quarterback front Thursday as coach Ken Whisenhunt continued to play his cards close to the vest. Kevin Kolb is “making progress” but Whisenhunt wants to see how Kolb reacts Friday to the plane flight to Cincinnati.
“He’s getting reps and seeing the field and getting acclimated to the game plan,” Whisenhunt said, and when he was asked just how many reps — remember, Whiz said he’d like to get the starter more reps — the coach just smiled. “I’m not going to comment on the number of reps,” he said. “Both (quarterbacks) are getting reps and both working. We’ll make a decision at the end of the week when we see where everything is.”
Such a vague path would seem to point more toward John Skelton getting another start, since Kolb was clearly the starter the week he finally returned against Dallas. But it’s wait and see.
— Whisenhunt did say he doubts right tackle Brandon Keith, sporting a walking boot because of an ankle injury and sitting out practice for a second straight game, will be able to play in Cincinnati. That means Jeremy Bridges would get the start for the fourth time this season.
