Coach Whisenhunt ‘optimistic’ Kolb will be ready this week

Kevin Kolb’s return could be at hand.

Out since Week 8 after suffering a turf toe injury, the QB

– who was close to playing Sunday in St. Louis — may
finally be ready to get back on the field.

“I think that we’re certainly more optimistic about him
being able to go this week,” Cardinals head coach Ken
Whisenhunt said. “It’s going to really depend on where he
is
Wednesday and as that progresses, but he made enough
progress last week that you feel good about him being able
to do it this week.”

The Cardinals have gone 3-1 in Kolb’s absence, even with
backup John Skelton posting an uneven 57.3 QB rating to go
along with four touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

The big question becomes whether or not Kolb can improve
from where he was when he got hurt and continue leading
the Cardinals to wins. While Skelton hasn’t been great,
there is something to be said for winning three of four
games.
