--Quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are working with the starting unit on alternating days at summer voluntary practices. Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said there is competition at the position and that Skelton will get a legitimate shot to win the job. The Cardinals, however, have already paid Kolb $19 million and traded cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick in 2012 to get him. That would seem to give him the edge.
--Cornerback Greg Toler participated in more snaps the second week of practices than he did the first. Toler is coming off ACL surgery. He looked so good the first week that his workload was increased slightly.
--Running back Beanie Wells is not participating in practices as he rehabilitates from knee surgery. The procedure was to clean out the joint. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the plan all along was to have Wells skip these practices so he would be ready for training camp.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "You've seen my dad. I don't mean that in a derogatory way but he's not a little man by any stretch of the imagination. I can't play receiver at that weight." -- WR larry Fitzgerald, on battling genetics to keep his weight in check.
