Coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t making any announcements on his starting quarterback, but he acknowledged that Kevin Kolb remained limited and “is probably still a little ways away from playing.” That seems to open the door for John Skelton Sunday in San Francisco (not that there was a lot of reason to think otherwise anyway).
— The injury report climbed by one today when reserve tackle Jeremy Bridges was added as limited with a bad back.
— Tight end Rob Housler (groin) was upgraded to limited, as was running back Beanie Wells (knee) and tight end Todd Heap (hamstring). The Heap thing is a mystery. Whisenhunt certainly isn’t putting any timeline on his return. “That’s a tough one,” Whisenhunt said. “He’s getting closer, but it’s been frustrating for him to fight this thing. Hopefully he will be back here rolling pretty soon.”
— Safety Kerry Rhodes doesn’t have a cast on anymore, but the status of when he will return remains murky.
— Speaking of Rhodes, he will host the Big Red Rage tonight at 6 p.m. at the Majerle’s in Chandler. Skelton will be his guest.
