TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals are sticking with Ryan Lindley at quarterback, at least until Kevin Kolb is healthy enough to play.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt says that while Lindley had three bad throws that resulted in interceptions, two of them returned for touchdowns, in his first NFL start on Sunday, the rookie did have other times when he was effective in Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Rams.
It was the Cardinals' seventh loss in a row and almost all of them can be largely attributed to the quarterback position, with Kolb injured, replacement John Skelton ineffective and now with Lindley showing his inexperience at the worst of times.
For the first time since he was hurt five games ago, Kolb was able to practice on a limited basis last week.

As the playoff picture continues to paint itself, it looks more and more like the Pittsburgh Steelers may not be a part of it.
The Steelers have dropped consecutive games to bring their record to 6-5, tied with the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers now sit three games behind the division-leading Ravens and will face them in Baltimore this Sunday afternoon.
"Will the Rams beat the Cardinals again? It can be done but since the Rams didn't even win a single divisional game last year, the statistics are not in favor of a sweep. Of course, the Rams have new coaches and new players on board. I give the Rams a slight edge in this one but am not holding my breath for them to win."Someone please give me a plate so I can eat my...
Cardinals rookie QB Ryan Lindley was disastrous in his first NFL start Sunday, completing 31-of-52 for 312 yards but throwing four interceptions with zero touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Larry Fitzgerald only had three catches on 12 targets and probably can't wait for the season to end.
Janoris Jenkins became the first player in Rams history and the first NFL rookie since 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game and St. Louis dominated the second half to hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row, 31-17 on Sunday.

Either Janoris Jenkins was really good on Sunday, or the Cardinals’ quarterback situation has reached an all-time low. It looked like it was actually a little bit of both.

GLENDALE, Ariz. The starting quarterback cant stay healthy, the backup quarterback cant hit a wide-open freight car and the third-string QB is astonishingly adept at hitting opposing defenders.
Sounds like the trailer to an awful cable TV series, no?
Unfortunately, its not fantasy. Its macabre reality for the Cardinals. And the grisly addendum is that there are no backups left...
GLENDALE, Az. -- A season that started with so much promise has completely disintegrated for the Arizona Cardinals. That's how Sunday's 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams began and ended, too. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley in his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome as Arizona dropped...
(AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals haven't been the same since they faced the St. Louis Rams back in October.
Now Arizona will likely look very different.
The Cardinals will try to end their six-game losing streak when they give rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley his first career start Sunday against the visiting Rams, who are winless in their last five.
