It looked really bad on the replays. Skelton was VERY OBVIOUSLY in a ton of pain.

I do not want to speculate here BUT, this looks like a serious deal.

UPDATE:

X-rays on Skelton's ankle were negative, MRI is pending.

UPDATED II:

Per Whiz, it's a low ankle sprain.

Have not seen it, but there are a lot of ligaments and bones in the Ankle, could be any one of them, or more than one.

I;m not entirely sure of what he hurt exactly. I heard the announcers saw his ankle but it could have been his leg or knee real easily too.

Somers and Urban both reported as a right ankle injury.

That's what the announcers said too but I'm really not sure.

Whiz said the team is bracing for bad news, hoping for just a high ankle sprain.

If we're hoping for a high ankle sprain, an injury that would keep him out 3-4 weeks easy, this is obviously very bad.

This really worry me. I think Kolb a good QB coming off the bench but I rather Skelton be starting.

Fleming has a shoulder injury, no news on severity.

On the QB front, if Skelton is IR'ed we cannot bring back Bartel until after week 6 becasue he was initially put on IR before he was released with an injury settlement - Straight from the mouth of Rich.

Again, don't want to fuel the speculation train but if Skelton is in fact done for the year, we'd be on the veteran quarterback lookout IMHO. I just can;'t imagine Whiz would make Lindley the backup.

Correction:

Whiz didn't say he was "hoping" it was a high ankle sprain...he said he was "praying" it was a high ankle sprain.

So are we Ken, so are we.

Mike Jurecki ‏@mikejurecki

Hearing #Cards QB John Skelton has a high ankle sprain (could B out 4-6 wks) will B re-evaluated tomorrow, Kolb will start in New England.

He;ll be going for an MRI to confirm but it does sound like Jurecki's correct. Read on twitter that Skelton was walking in the locker room. Couldn't do that with a break and if the trainers suspected anything at all with his knee or leg, he'd be immobilized no questions asked.

We may have dodged a real bullet here, even if it is still 4-8 weeks.

Here hoping John Heals fast and Kolb can win a few games why he heals.

Get Matt Moore or David Garrard on the next plane to Zona.

Is Garrard healthy?
