- The Arizona Cardinals officially listed John Skelton (ankle) as doubtful. No one told team president Michael Bidwill, who confirmed the obvious on the radio this week: Kevin Kolb is starting. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Friday that he still "has hope" Skelton will play despite his ankle sprain and not practicing all week. Secondary stars Patrick Peterson (groin) and Adrian Wilson (ankle) are questionable, but expected to play.
Jeremiah: Key matchups in Week 2
Daniel Jeremiah has Week 2's top battles, including Ray Lewis vs. LeSean
McCoy and Peyton Manning vs. Matt Ryan. More ...
- The Steelers continue to list Rashard Mendenhall (knee) as having practiced fully, but he's listed as doubtful. They are playing it very safe with him. Linebacker James Harrison (knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) are both listed as questionable. We'd be surprised if Harrison played. Polamalu sounds more up in the air after missing practice all week.
- Irreplaceable Oakland Raiders long snapper Jon Condo (concussion) is questionable. The Raiders signed a replacement in case he can't suit up. (Fear not, Travis Goethel.) The team will have wide receiver Denarius Moore available after he missed all of the preseason and Week 1. He's probable. Starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain (ankle) is questionable after practicing on a limited basis this week.
