Fitzgerald Has Faith in Ryan Lindley at QB


Most won’t give the Arizona Cardinals a chance to defeat the surging Seattle Seahawks this Sunday in the desert with a third-string quarterback starting under center.

Larry Fitzgerald, however, isn’t buying the storyline that Ryan Lindley — who hasn’t started a game since Dec. 23, 2012 — will be an Achilles heel. Fitzgerald told NFL Network’s NFL AM on Tuesday that Lindley has the mentality and talent to guide the Cards.

“He’s a really cerebral young man, he’s been in the league for over three (years) and he works hard, extremely hard in the offseason,” the wide receiver said. “We actually train together and he’s a student of the game, really focused. … We really believe in Ryan, he can make all the throws. We just got to protect him, make some plays for him outside, run the ball. We’re going to be just fine.”
