Talk about having a tough time getting around. 

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is sidelined with a case of turf toe with his right big toe. To go with that, he has a mid-foot sprain and a bone bruise.

Kolb moved from a walking boot to an unlaced tennis shoe on Wednesday, but his status for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams is very much up in the air. He could be replaced by John Skelton.

"He has come a long way in two days," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. "That thing was swollen and black and blue. It's going to be how much movement he can get back into it and if the swelling will go down."

The issue for him is he needs to be able to plant and drive when he throws the football. If he can’t, it could create a world of problems.

"You just don't want to get out there and have the ball start sailing and doing things it wouldn't have normally done," Kolb said.
