TEMPE, Ariz. — Kevin Kolb lost his starting job in Philadelphia, then went to Arizona and lost it there, too.

But John Skelton's injury has given Kolb a measure of redemption. Now, Kolb gets a chance to embellish his comeback against the Eagles team that traded him away.

That's as long as he remains the Cardinals' starting quarterback, and while coach Ken Whisenhunt won't say so, there's little reason to believe he won't as Skelton works his way back from the sprained right ankle he sustained in the season opener against Seattle.

Kolb came in to direct the winning touchdown drive against the Seahawks, then helped the team to an improbable upset at New England.

Next up on Sunday is Philadelphia in a matchup of teams off to 2-0 starts.
