Found November 22, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Ryan Lindley will be the Cardinals’ Week 12 starter at quarterback. John Skelton has been benched. Lindley should remain the starter until Kevin Kolb (ribs, shoulder) is cleared to return, which could be as early as Week 13. According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, the Cardinals “really like” Lindley and were “waiting for the right time” to start him. That’s all good and well, but it’s extremely doubtful a sixth-round rookie gives the Cardinals a better chance of winning against the Rams than Skelton, no matter how ineffective Skelton has been. It’s yet another downgrade for Larry Fitzgerald, who’s cleared 52 yards just once in his past four games. Cardinals will be one of the teams looking for a quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft, we can almost guarantee that.
