Found November 21, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt will go with rookie Ryan Lindley as the Cardinals' starting quarterback Sunday against St. Louis. Whisenhunt announced Wednesday that the sixth-round pick will replace John Skelton. Lindley took over for Skelton last Sunday in the second quarter of the Cardinals' loss to Atlanta and managed to complete 9 of 20 passes for 64 yards. Skelton was 2 of 7 for 6 yards in the game. Quarterback Kevin Kolb remains slowed by a rib injury that has kept him out since week six. He has been limited him to six games this season. The Cardinals (4-6) are in the midst of a six-game losing streak.

Quarterback quandary not all Cardinals' doing

TEMPE, Ariz. With coach Ken Whisenhunts announcement Wednesday that rookie Ryan Lindley will start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, we asked a veteran Cardinals reporter if it was time to craft a Lindley opus for his audience.

Arizona Cardinals: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#22)

Last week: 23 (+1) Record: 4-6 I’ve watched a lot of football, but I saw two things I’ve never seen before in the Falcons/Cardinals game this week. First, Matt Ryan won despite throwing 5 interceptions and no touchdowns, the first time that’s happened since the merger (Bart Starr did it last).
