Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb expected to play
By Tim MacMahon
IRVING, Texas – It appears likely that Arizona starting quarterback Kevin Kolb play Sunday against the Cowboys.
Kolb missed the last four games due to foot and toe injuries, but he fully participated in the Cardinals’ Wednesday practice. He told reporters after the practice that he expects to start against the Cowboys.
The Cardinals acquired Kolb, a Stephenville, Texas, native, in a trade with the Eagles this summer and signed him to a six-year, $65 million contract extension. His performance so far has been an extreme disappointment. The Cardinals are 1-7 with Kolb as a starter. He has completed only 56.8 percent of his passes and thrown as many interceptions (eight) as touchdowns.
Six Cowboys did not practice Wednesday: receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), nose tackle Josh Brent (knee), fullback Tony Fiammetta (illness), quarterback Jon Kitna (back), right guard Kyle Kosier (foot) and running back Phillip Tanner (hamstring). Fiammetta and Kitna have already been ruled out for Sunday’s game.
Cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring), safety Gerald Sensabaugh (foot) and linebacker Bruce Carter (knee) were listed as having limited participation in the practice. Carter has soreness in the knee that he had surgically repaired last year, but it is not considered serious.
