Cardinals should get Kevin Kolb back this week

Kevin Kolb could be ready to make his return for the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday when they host the Dallas Cowboys.

Kolb has missed four straight games with a painful toe injury and was inactive for the win at St. Louis on Sunday. But Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt announced at his press conference Monday that Kolb could be ready this week.

I think we are certainly a lot more optimistic about him being able to go this week,” Whisenhunt said, according to the team’s Web site. “It will depend on where he is Wednesday, but he made enough progress last week that you feel good about him being able to do it.”

That means John Skelton could be headed to the bench and he hasn’t been playing particularly well.
