Kevin Kolb expected to start when he’s healthy

According to Dan Arkush of, Kevin Kolb is expected to be the Arizona Cardinals’ starting quarterback when he’s healthy enough to play.

As far as the Cardinals’ uncertain QB situation is concerned, word is that Kevin Kolb will return to the starting lineup as soon as he is considered fully recovered from the damaged ribs that have forced him to miss the last four games — which we hear is likely to be Arizona’s Week 13 game against the Jets.

“He’s getting more zip on his passes and making progress in practice,” the insider said of Kolb. “I think they will go back to him. They still have to see what they’ve got in him. They played their best football when he was under center. He was efficient, and in control.

“It was good to see what he could do in a stretch of 4-5 games.”

Kolb didn’t look that bad earlier in the season when the Cardinals were pulling off some wins.  If he had an offensive line, he would be turning more heads.
