Bet on the NFLThe Arizona Cardinals host the Denver Broncos in Week 14 of the 2010 NFL regular season. In recent Broncos news, they have fired Josh McDaniels and named running backs coach Eric Studesville as interim head coach. They have also placed linebacker Joe Mays and tight end Dan Gronkowski on injured reserve. As for the Cardinals, they might turn to rookie John Skelton as the team's third starting quarterback of the season.
The Broncos play their first game under Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville against the Cardinals. The cruelest part of Josh McDaniels’ firing: Doing it just before the 3-9 Broncos faced John Skelton and the Cardinals.
When sports betting not that the sixth-round rookie from Fordham looks likely to start on Sunday.
Nothing is set in stone, but Skelton said he would be “competing” with newcomer Richard Bartel for the starting job. That indicates Derek Anderson won’t be available after suffering an apparent concussion last week.
The Cardinals placed Max Hall on injured reserve before signing Bartell, who was Daunte Culpepper’s backup in the UFL. The Arizona Cardinals may have to turn to their third starting QB of the season on Sunday due to injuries to both Derek Anderson and Max Hall.
Both QBs were knocked out of Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Rams. Anderson (concussion) is uncertain for next week's game against Denver, while the rookie Hall (separated shoulder) could be sidelined for the rest of the year.
That left fellow rookie John Skelton to finish Sunday's game, and could leave him in position to make his first NFL start. But coach Ken Whisenhunt, who last week said he didn't anticipate Skelton playing this year unless injuries occurred, wouldn't pencil the Fordham product in just yet. Anderson will have to pass the NFL's battery of tests for concussed players in order to be cleared to return.
