Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb said it was "beyond frustrating" to suffer the injury after missing four games because of a foot injury that included turf toe, and after he played well in the second half of a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 4.
On Tuesday, Kolb passed neurological tests mandated by the NFL, but that doesn't mean he will play against the Browns. He practiced "a little" Wednesday and hopes to increase activity as the week progresses.
If all goes well, he could play. Or Kolb and coaches could decide a week off is warranted.
"That's the key, too, not pushing too hard where we have setbacks," Kolb said of his practice plans. "That's the plan, to do a little more every day and get back out there as soon as possible."
By saying things like "not pushing too hard" and "get back out there as soon as possible," it sounds as if Kolb is preparing to miss Week 15. His absence would be a good thing for Larry Fitzgerald, who is more productive when John Skelton is under center.
