Whisenhunt: Cards' Kolb working hard to recover from turf toe

The Arizona Cardinals remain in wait-and-see mode with quarterback Kevin Kolb, whom coach Ken Whisenhunt described Monday as "day to day" because of a nagging turf toe injury.

Kolb sat out Sunday's 19-13 overtime victory over the St. Louis Rams because of lingering effects of the injury he sustained in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. John Skelton started in Kolb's place, completing 20 of 35 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.

"It sounds cliche, but we just have to see how it progresses," Whisenhunt said of Kolb's injury. "I was listening to the radio this morning and somebody said, 'Turf toe, what's that? That sounds like a sissy thing.' It's not. It's a very painful injury and something that's very difficult, especially for a quarterback, to be able to drop and push off of, or run out of the pocket and escape things."

Kolb had been listed as doubtful to face the Rams after missing the entire week of practice.

Whisenhunt also said cornerback Michael Adams "appears to be fine" after he was carted off the field with a neck injury, according to the team's official website. Adams was riding an exercise bike at the Cardinals' facility Monday, Whisenhunt said.
