Cardinals quarterback John Skelton was diagnosed with a low ankle sprain on Monday. But a source has told ProFootballTalk.com that Skelton is expected to miss as much time as most players with high ankle sprains. The source told PFT that Skelton is expected to miss two-to-four weeks. If the timetable is correct, Kevin Kolb will start against the Patriots and Eagles, at least. He may also start games versus the Dolphins and Rams.
Obviously, Skelton is not a fantasy starter, but this news means that in the next couple of weeks, the Eagles' and Patriots' defense are even stronger plays. And this could negatively impact wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald since he had much more success with Skelton under center than with Kolb last season. However, Fitzgerald should remain in your lineup until further notice. All other Cardinals receivers are totally off limits.
