Three quick mentions before I forget:
— The Cardinals made a practice squad move today, releasing cornerback Larry Parker and signing cornerback Greg McCoy. McCoy, out of TCU, was a seventh-round pick of the Bears in the draft.
— As mentioned by USA Today’s Mike Garafolo, the Cardinals worked out veteran defensive end/outside linebacker Andre Carter today. Carter had 10 sacks for the Patriots last year but had his season end prematurely after he tore his
quadriceps. Not sure if anything is imminent. The Cards aren’t the first team Carter has worked out for, so we’ll see if anything comes of it.
— During an appearance on KTAR — the news side of the station — and the “Karie and Chuck Show,” team president Michael Bidwill mentioned briefly that Kevin Kolb would start at quarterback this week. Asked by host Chuck Powell “Kolb or Skelton?” — half-jokingly, it sounded like — Bidwill said “Obviously Kevin has done an amazing job, and what a pro he is. He prepared last week with few reps, completely professional in his approach and at a moment’s notice he was able to step in and win the game for us. He’s going to be our starter obviously this week and we’re excited about the opportunity in front of us.”
There was no availability for coach Ken Whisenhunt or players Tuesday, so nothing else has yet been said on the quarterbacks. We’ll see what is said tomorrow and what the injury report brings with the gimpy John Skelton.
