For the third straight week, the Arizona Cardinals have put their big-time quarterback on the bench, and at a certain point, that may be more about performance than injury. Kolb's toe was the original reason for Kolb's absence from the Cardinals' offense, but Skelton has been far more effective in the last two games. We'll see if Skelton can continue his efficiency against San Francisco's excellent defense.

In other news, both of St. Louis' starting offensive tackles, Jason Smith and Rodger Saffold, will be out against the Seattle Seahawks — in fact, Saffold has been placed on injured reserve afte he tore a pectoral muscle during a weightlifting session. Also, the Atlanta Falcons will be without the services of receiver Julio Jones, and the San Diego Chargers will be without left tackle Marcus McNeill. Note to Norv Turner: Give backup tackle Brandyn Dombrowski some help on the left edge — he can't handle speed rushers on his own, and the Bears have two outstanding defensive ends in Julius Peppers and Israel Idonije.

As always, thanks to Brian McIntyre at Mac's Football Blog for the quick work!
