Report: Kolb out, Skelton starting for Cardinals

The Sports Xchange/

John Skelton will make his fifth start of the season for the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday as Kevin Kolb will remain out due to a concussion, according to a report.

A league source told the move would be made.

Kolb's status had been in question, but he had practiced more as the week went on, seemingly building momentum to be ready to play.

Instead, Skelton, who is 3-1 as a starter for Arizona this year, will start and Richard Bartel will serve as his back-up.

Skelton also led the Cardinals to a win when he relieved Kolb last week against the San Francisco 49ers just a few plays in when Kolb took a knee to the head.
