Skelton Opens 2012 NFL Season
Former Burges grad John Skelton lead the Arizona Cardinals on their only touchdown drive Sunday night in a 17-10 loss to the Saints in the inaugural Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. The game marks the first preseason game of the 2012 NFL season.
Kevin Kolb started for the Cardinals but only completed one pass while throwing an interception before leaving the game with a rib injury. Skelton came in to relieve Kolb and completed 4 of 6 passes for 32 yards including a 90-yard touchdown drive.
Kolb's status is unknown at this time. Arizona is at Kansas City on Friday.
