Quarterback Kevin Kolb has been throwing lightly as he recovers from the detached ribs and a sprained shoulder joint he suffered in the Bills game last month. There is no definitive time table for his return but Kolb is expected to miss several more weeks. He is not throwing more than 20 yards down field at the moment.


"Running has gotten a lot better," Kolb told Yahoo Sports. "If I ever try to torque or turn, it's just not there yet. I went out there today and tried to throw to some of the receivers as they were running around, and it just wasn't great. I try not to get frustrated."


John Skelton remains the starter at quarterback for the Red Birds.


In other injury news, running back Beanie Wells has returned to practice as he recovers from turf toe. Wells will not play in the Falcons game on Nov. 18 but is eligible to return the following week against the St. Louis Rams.


Offensive guard Adam Snyder is hoping to return in time for the Falcons contest. Snyder has missed the last two games with a quadriceps bruise.

The Cardinals have not won a game in Wisconsin since 1949. Harry Truman was the President then. White Heat starring James Cagney debuted in movie theaters. The cost of a loaf of bread in the United States was 14 cents. They were known as the Chicago Cardinals then. It's been a long, long time.
