Whisenhunt: Kolb expected to practice Wed., start on Sun.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is expected to sit out practice on Tuesday with a thigh contusion, but should return Wednesday, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

“Kevin’s got a contusion on his thigh,” he told media on Tuesday. “I’m not sure if he’ll practice today — he’s a little bit stiff — but I expect him to practice tomorrow.”

Kolb, often criticized for time spent on the sidelines being injured, is also expected to start the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, the beginning of the Red Birds’ preseason.

“He’s going to start Sunday,” said Whiz. “We’ll have a rotation for how we do the starts, which we’ve done before.”

Kolb was injured by defensive lineman David Carter, who banged knees with the QB during a sprint-draw, something Whisenhunt said is not uncommon.
