FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- New quarterback Kevin Kolb says he is finally comfortable with the Arizona Cardinals offense and looks forward to putting his newfound knowledge to a stern test when the team travels to Green Bay to face the NFL champion Packers.
Kolb says it has been difficult to unlearn the things he knew as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles but after two weeks of training camp the Cardinals have installed their core offense and he understands what his role should be.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt says Kolb and the rest of the first unit most likely will play into the second quarter of Friday night's game.
Kolb is the critical addition to a team looking to rebound from a 5-11 season.
