first_imgKevin Kolb’s health is improving, that much is certain.But he has yet to get back on the practice field for theCardinals, putting his status for Sunday’s game inPhiladelphia very much in doubt.However, not making it to the practice field would notautomatically rule him out for Sunday, according toCardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt.“I wouldn’t say that he has to, but I would like for himto [practice],” Whisenhunt said. “It’s all going to be afunction of how much more he can do on his foot. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ “He’s made good progress but we have to make sure that hecan still be able to drop and move.”With Kolb it’s about physical limitations more thanmental ones, according to the coach, because whoever theQB is Sunday needs to be able to move around in the pocketagainst an Eagles defense that is as strong as it is fast.In fact, speed is one of the things Whisenhunt is worriedmost about.“They’re a fast team,” he said. “You’ve got to understandthat they’re going to make some plays but you’ve just gotto stay disciplined and not go crazy and get so wrapped upin them making a play that it affects how you operate yourscheme because what that does is lead to more plays, andthat’s when you get into a problem.”Another thing that could pose a problem for the team,simply, is playing on the road. The Cardinals have lost 11straight away from University of Phoenix Stadium, and fewenvironments are as hostile as the one they — andprobably John Skelton — are set to face Sunday.“You don’t ever know until you get in the heat of thebattle, but he certainly appears to be much betterprepared to handle that,” Whisenhunt said of Skelton.
