Multiple reports have emerged on Sunday regarding the ability of Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner to play despite a concussion that he suffered last week.

For days, it appeared that Warner would indeed play. But he didn't feel well when he woke up Sunday morning, and it currently appears that Matt Leinart will get the start.

If so, it'll create an intriguing rematch between Leinart and Vince Young, who last got together for an epic national title game to cap the 2005 college football season.

Young's pro career has resembled a roller coaster without brakes; Leinart's has barely gotten out of the station.

And if both Warner and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger don't play, it'll be the clearest statement yet that the league finally is taking the issue of concussions seriously. Though it's far too late for guys like Mike Webster, Al Toon, and Wayne Chrebet, it's better that it happened late than never at all.

You certainly have the right sig to promote a Young vs. Leinart re-match in the pros.

It's odd that the Warner and Roethlisberger concussions have lead to another Young-Leinart showdown, as well as being one Dennis Dixon injury away from a Flacco-Palko faceoff of former Pitt QB teammates that competed against each other for the starting job with the loser banished to the Delaware Blue Hens (as noted in another thread).
