The question is going to come up every week, and coach Ken Whisenhunt knows it. The message, though, isn’t going to change.
“I don’t want to sound like a broken record,” Whisenhunt said, “but until John (Skelton) is ready to play again, there’s nothing really new there, nothing to talk about.”
Whisenhunt is playing the quarterback situation this year the same as he did last season. He sees no reason to tip his hand, or create a firestorm, if he can help it. Clearly he feels this is the best course of action. And it doesn’t hurt that Skelton is not 100 percent right now. Skelton did practice with the team later last week but on a limited basis.
“But I have to see him step and drive, do it in practice with guys around him,” Whisenhunt said.
At this point, you’d think there’s no way Kevin Kolb would come out of the lineup. His passer rating is over 100. The Cards are 3-0. I wouldn’t think — and this is my opinion — the Cardinals or Whisenhunt would want to tinker with that right now. Whisenhunt certainly isn’t tipping his hand. Asked about his thought process when Skelton does get healthy, Whiz wasn’t biting. “I guess when he gets to that point we’ll see.”
— No new injury updates on RB Beanie Wells (toe) or DT Darnell Dockett (hamstring). Whiz did say he thought TE Todd Heap (knee) and S Adrian Wilson (groin) were close to playing Sunday. The hope is that both can be back against the Dolphins.
