Most of the Cardinals starters will play into the second half on Thursday night against the Titans, and quarterback John Skelton will receive the majority of the work with the first-team offense.
That doesn’t mean, however, that coach Ken Whisenhunt will pick a starting quarterback after that game. The decision could go through the final preseason game, against Denver on Aug. 30.
“I don’t think there’s any pressure or any reason to say you would have to make that decision before that game,” Whisenhunt said. “I just want to make sure we have enough situational evaluations of these players to make that decision.”
The winner of this job will certainly have QB2 potential, but the fact that neither have stepped up at this point isn't necessarily a good sign.
