Welcome back, Kevin Kolb, meet DeMarcus Ware

Kevin Kolb will probably start Sunday against the Dallas
Cowboys.

The quarterback, who has missed the last four games due to
various ailments, has taken the starter’s share of reps in
practice this week, and seems to be good to go.

However, head coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t ready name Kolb
the starter…yet.

“I’d like to get through [Friday] and make sure there’s no
setbacks,” Whisenhunt said. “We’re obviously working
towards that being the case.

“The only thing that’s going to prevent that is if he has
some soreness in his foot and he doesn’t feel comfortable
Sunday.”

While remote, that’s still a possibility. That’s why
Whisenhunt said John Skelton, who has started the last
four games, is still getting a good amount of work in
practice this week.

“You’ve got to be prepared for that,” Whisenhunt said.

Whoever lines up under center for the Cardinals Sunday
will have their work cut out for them. The Cowboys are
rolling right now and feature one of the game’s best
defensive lines, one that includes Anthony Spencer and one
of the game’s best sack artists, DeMarcus Ware, who has 14
sacks on the season. In 11 games.

Good luck, Levi Brown. Look out, whomever is at
quarterback.

“Our approach offensively has got to be one where we
identify where those guys are and we’re on the same page,”
Whisenhunt said. “We’ve got to make some plays offensively
— especially on third down — to get some consistency
going.”
