UPDATE II: Per Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official website, Hall said he dislocated his shoulder and expects to miss a few weeks, while Whisenhunt told reporters he hasn’t made a decision on who will start next at QB.
UPDATE: Hall injured his left shoulder during the fourth quarter and has been replaced by fellow rookie John Skelton, the Cardinals’ emergency third quarterback. If Skelton were to go down, the Cardinals would be forced to go back to Anderson.
Hoping for a spark, coach Ken Whisenhunt has pulled QB Derek Anderson in favor of rookie Max Hall against the Rams.
It’s a complete reversal of fortunes from October, when Anderson replaced an ineffective Hall after a brief three-game experiment.
Anderson was pulled late in the third quarter after completing 7 of 20 passes for 93 yards with one interception.
The move to Hall didn’t work as intended. He was sacked on his first play from scrimmage, threw an incomplete pass on the next and on his third play was intercepted by Bradley Fletcher.
At this point, Cardinals fans might be wondering if they really were better off with Matt Leinart.
