Kevin Kolb went down after a running back went the wrong way. Turns out, that busted play has resulted in a busted up starting quarterback.
On Sunday, Kolb left the game against Buffalo late with an injury. Tuesday, the Cardinals announced that Kolb isn't coming back for an "unspecified period of time."
According to the Cardinals, Kolb's CT and MRI results showed no fracture in his ribs or sternum. But the tests did reveal that Kolb suffered cartilage damage in the rib area, along with a sprained left sternoclavicular joint.
However, ESPN is citing a "team source" and reporting that Kolb had "multiple ribs detach from his sternum as well as suffering a sprained sternoclavicular joint in his chest area." As a result, ESPN says Kolb is reportedly going to miss "several weeks."
Hence, the QB that started the season appears to be the starter again - John Skelton. Rookie Ryan Lindley will serve as the backup to Skelton.
Whether the Cardinals will seek to add another QB will most certainly be a question posed to Ken Whisenhunt later this week.
