Former Burges Mustang Quarterback John Skelton continues to impress the Arizona Cardinals. Skelton threw for 282 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in a 21-19 come from behind victory over San Francisco Sunday. Skelton finished with a career-high passing rating of 106.5, but more importantly, Arizona is 4-1 when Skelton plays.
“It’s nice to see him, especially after the way he played against San Francisco a couple of weeks ago, bounce back and play well,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “We have to eliminate those interceptions. That was more decision-making than anything, but he is doing a nice job of staying in the pocket and moving when there’s pressure. All those things are very good, and he made some very good throws as well.”
Suffering from concussion-like symptoms, there are a few tests Kolb must pass before being cleared to play. Whisenhunt said Monday he didn’t have a timetable for Kolb’s return. Given that, Skelton will be readied this week for the Browns, too.
“John came in after getting no reps in practice and was able to manage the game and make some plays with his feet,” wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “It was great. John is just a hard worker and he was ready for the moment.”
