Source: John Skelton expected to start
Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is expected to start Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals while Kevin Kolb continues to recover from his most recent concussion, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Kolb had increased his participation in practice last Thursday and coach Ken Whisenhunt was optimistic Kolb would be able to play against the Cleveland Browns. But Skelton ultimately got the start and helped Arizona win its fourth straight.
The Cardinals have won six of their last seven games to improve to 7-7.
