Arizona Cardinals Injury Report: John Skelton, Todd Heap Upgraded On Thursday

Although I still see it as likely that Kevin Kolb is the starter for the Arizona Cardinals as they take on the Eagles this weekend, the chances John Skelton returns to reclaim his old spot are getting better. He was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, moving around and throwing a few passes.

Skelton wasn't the only one, either. Todd Heap, who strained his knee against the Patriots last weekend, was also upgraded from a DNP to limited in practice. This is good news for whatever quarterback may take the field for the Cardinals.

Get the full injury report after the jump.

Per Darren Urban, here is the full list:

Adrian Wilson (ankle), Rashad Johnson (hamstring), James Sanders (calf), O'Brien Schofield (knee), Adam Snyder (elbow), Ryan Williams (knee) Heap (knee), Skelton (ankle): Limited participants

Daryn Colledge (shoulder), Jamell Fleming (shoulder), Jeff King (knee),Beanie Wells (knee), Kerry Rhodes (foot): Full participants

Skelton and Heap were the only two players to be upgraded. Everyone else's status remained the same as it was on Wednesday. As I said before, I still think Skelton sits at least one more week. It could be precautionary or he could still be dealing with too much pain in his ankle. Heap, on the other hand, could see some action this weekend.

As for the rest of the limited participants, I expect nearly all of them to play. The only one I am slightly worried about is Sanders, who is new to the list from last week. He plays very well on special teams, so his presence would be missed.
