Max Hall Placed On Injured Reserve

Sam Bradford went No. 1.
John Skelton went 154 picks later.
The Cardinals and the Rams each drafted a quarterback last April, ostensibly to groom them for the future. The plans for a first-round pick – especially the top guy in the entire draft – are different than a fifth-round selection, so it’s no surprise Bradford has been the starter for St. Louis all season while the Cards have kept Skelton far from actual game action.
And it isn’t going to change, with the struggling Cardinals playing host to Bradford and the Rams Sunday. Bradford will continue to make his case to be the future top quarterback in the NFC West. Skelton will wait.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt made that clear earlier this week by saying Skelton was unlikely to play this season, barring an injury, despite the Cards’ place in the standings. Veteran Derek Anderson remains the starter for now, and undrafted rookie Max Hall is still the backup and the man who would take over if Whisenhunt decided to pull the plug on Anderson.
Where does that leave Skelton? Learning.

Whisenhunt said he's sticking with Anderson because Anderson has been working hard and has improved over the past few weeks. "That's really what you look for," Whisenhunt said.

The Cardinals plan to feature RB Beanie Wells — coach Ken Whisenhunt tired of Tim Hightower’s three lost fumbles — against the Bucs’ 31st ranked run defense that is allowing 158 yards a game. Max Hall really struggled with the wet ball in Seattle last Sunday, but Whisenhunt really likes him over Derek Anderson. The key, though, is that the Cardinals now have a healthy contingent of receivers for the first time since the season opener.

Cardinals QB QB Max Hall said he was feeling fine today after coming back to practice after his concussion. He said he wasn’t worried about it despite two blows to the head in two games, and said he’s never had a concussion in the past.
He also said he wasn’t happy with how he played, which is obviously the focus in practice.
“There are things I can fix, though, excited to prove I am better than that,” Hall said.
– Hall said he is considering gloves, although made it sound like it would be for bad weather games and not all the time.

Max Hall passes neuro tests and is cleared to practice. If that goes well, he will start against Bucs on Sunday

Cardinals rookie QB Max Hall will make his first career road start in one of the league's loudest venues — and with significant rain and wind in the forecast. Seattle has the league’s 30th-ranked pass defense, but will load the box against the run, dial up blitzes on passing downs and dare Hall to make plays downfield. The Cardinals will counter with a conservative game plan despite the return of receivers Steve Breaston and Early Doucet. Hall has shown a tendency to make poor decisions early in games, and the Cardinals can’t afford to fall behind. Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, who has 26 receptions and two TDs on the year, could have a big day if Kelly Jennings (hamstring) can’t go. That means that rookie Walter Thurmond must shut down one of the game’s best.

The Cardinals love the energy and confidence of Max Hall, but it does seem awfully early in the season to be turning the team over to a rookie quarterback. Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald continues to struggle as the slot receiver, a position that Anquan Boldin handled in the past. The good news for Fitzgerald and Hall is that the Saints will start rookie CB Patrick Robinson for injured Tracy Porter. The Cardinals do want to run the ball and look for Beanie Wells, who has been upset with his playing time, to see more first-half carries. New Orleans defensive end Will Smith will test his groin injury in pregame warmups.
