Coach Ken Whisenhunt still hasn’t made his mind up about who is going to start, as the decision seems between inept Derek Anderson and rookie John Skelton.
Anderson though missed another practice Thursday because he had not been cleared to participate after a concussion sidelined him late in Sunday’s 19-6 loss to St. Louis.
So it seems the decision is Skelton, or the team can go with a total curveball and start newly signed Richard Bartel, who the team inked this week after he was Daunte Culpepper’s backup for Sacramento of the UFL.
Whisenhunt said Skelton, a 6-foot-6 fifth-round draft pick out of Fordham, “is making progress.”
“He’s putting a lot of time in,” the coach said. “I’ll tell you what, he’s here morning, noon and night. The hard part is taking it from the learning aspect and executing it on the field, but he’s working hard at it.”
Skelton made his NFL debut in the fourth quarter against the Rams. Whisenhunt said Anderson “definitely still is in the mix” to be in the lineup Sunday.
