Cardinals to start QB Lindley


Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians named quarterback Ryan Lindley as the starter against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.

Arians also said Monday that the team will have a package of plays for rookie quarterback Logan Thomas as well.

Arians went with Lindley over Thomas after Drew Stanton suffered a knee sprain while being sacked in Cardinals’ 12-6 win over the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night. Lindley took over at quarterback and completed 4 of 10 passes for 30 yards in his first game since 2012. Stanton was 12-for-20 for 109 yards before leaving the game.

Lindley re-signed with the Cardinals on Nov. 11 after Carson Palmer was lost for the season with a torn ACL in Week 10, also suffered against the Rams.

Lindley has started four games in his NFL career, all with the Cardinals during the 2012 season.
