Kolb listed as limited on Cardinals injury report, can 'maybe' go vs. Jets

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Kevin Kolb working to get back from rib injury, but not sure if he can play this coming Sunday.

If the Cardinals want any chance to regain some ground in the NFC West this season, they will need to start with a victory in the Meadowlands against the Jets this Sunday. And if they want to do that, they will need all the firepower they can get.

Rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley is scheduled to start the game against New York, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. But if Kevin Kolb, who has been out multiple weeks with a rib injury, is able to return, he would likely shift into the starting role.

As of now, it is up in the air as to whether Kolb would even be able to go this Sunday. It seems that he may still be enduring some pain when he throws, which would not be conducive to his return. Because of that, he has been listed as limited on the team's official injury report.

Local reporters caught up with Kolb after the team's practice on Tuesday, in which he had multiple things to say (via Craig Grialou of Arizona Sports 620):

Will he go? Maybe, maybe not. At this point, I wouldn't get my hopes up. We know how these types of injuries tend to linger in the NFL, especially at the quarterback position. I would give it at least one more week until Kolb makes the final decision.

For now, if Kolb is ruled out, that would leave Lindley as the undoubted starter. Let's hope the results are better this time than his outing against the Rams last Sunday.
