Arizona Cardinals Injury Update: Kevin Kolb Feeling Healthy, Symptom Free

After taking a knee to the head in a week 14 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb was diagnosed with a concussion and was forced to sit out the rest of the season. He was replaced by second year man, John Skelton, but many fans felt disappointed that the quarterback that the team invested so heavily in was only able to truly play in eight games.

Yesterday, Kolb sent a text message to XTRA 910's Mike Jurecki regarding his health. See what he said after the jump.

Here is the Tweet that Jurecki sent out regarding the message he received from Kolb:

Cardinal fans Kevin Kolb update, via text he mentioned he's feeling good & ready to get back to work. #symptomfree #cards

It sounds like Kolb is good to go and that the injury he sustained will not come with any lingering side effects. That's good news, as sometimes concussions and all of the negative symptoms afterwards can end players' careers.

It's still a while away, but Kolb will now be able to participate in OTAs, workouts and mini-camps without the fear of aggravating an ongoing injury. His turf toe injury should be completely healed up by then as well, so the ensuing competition between him and John Skelton should be a good one.
