Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton is inactive for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots because of an ankle injury he sustained in the opener against Seattle.

Kevin Kolb, who led the Cardinals's game-winning drive last Sunday after Skelton was hurt, will get the start. Rookie Ryan Lindley will be the backup.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson had been listed as questionable with a groin injury, but is active. Safeties Rashad Johnson (thigh) and Adrian Wilson (ankle) were also questionable but are also active.
