FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Cardinals starting quarterback Kevin Kolb injured his thigh late in Monday's afternoon practice when defensive tackle David Carters knee hit Kolb's right thigh. Kolb limped behind the huddle and fell to a knee while trainers worked on his right leg.
The good news is that Kolb was able to walk off the practice field under his own power and shortly after practice, Cardinals spokesman, Mark Dalton informed the media that Kolb had sustained a right thigh contusion after getting hit by a knee. Dalton added that Kolb was getting the thigh iced.
And there's more good news to report. Shortly after we left the Sky Dome, the Cardinals tweeted out a picture of Kolb signing autographs after practice.
So we won't know the severity of the injury until Tuesday afternoon's news conference with head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
The other news today at training camp is that running back Beanie Wells is expected to start practicing with the team as early as next week. Coach Whisenhunt telling the media today that Wells is progressing and should be able to do some work next week.
We also found out that running back Ryan Williams won't play much in the pre-season (we all remember that he got hurt last year in a pre-season game against the Packers) so we can expect to see more of LaRod Stephens-Howling and the rest of the running backs on the depth chart.
Coach even had a little fun with the media today. When asked about the lack of depth at running back, coach said, "we may unleash the Shermanator, so um, but we'll see. We're kind of holding that in our back pocket, but we may pull that out." Of course, coach referring to fullback Anthony Sherman, the second year pro out of Connecticut.
The other area of concern that we're keeping our eye on here in Flagstaff is the progress of the offensive line, but we won't know much more until the team takes on the Saints Sunday night in Canton.
