Arizona Cardinals Injury Report: Skelton Sits, Wells A Full Participant

As the Arizona Cardinals prepare to take on the New England Patriots in Foxborough this Sunday, they will be without their "starting quarterback" for now. John Skelton sustained a low ankle sprain against the Seahawks and although it is doubtful that he plays, Ken Whisenhunt has not ruled the idea out completely.

Regardless of Whisenhunt says, it's what we see on the field that counts. Skelton did not participate in practice on Wednesday, leaving Kevin Kolb to take all of the snaps with the first team. Outside of Skelton, every other player was able to participate in some form.

Here is the tweet from Darren Urban:

O'Brien Schofield has been dealing with the knee issues since the preseason, so it is understandable that he had a limited interaction with the team. I would expect him to play. The same goes for Jamell Fleming. He injured his shoulder against the Seahawks, forcing him to leave the game early. His contributions as the team's nickel corner cannot be overlooked and again, Whisenhunt noted that the injury was too serious, so I expect him to play despite his limited practice.

Adrian Wilson is the only player that surprised me. I was unaware that he was having ankle issues, but with A-Dub being how he is, I would list him as doubtful to NOT play against the Patriots. He will be out there.

It's good to see that most of the team is fairly healthy. With this list out, that means that Beanie Wells was a full participant in practice. He had tweaked his hamstring before the game against Seattle, so his play was limited. He should be a full go and possibly the starter against New England.
