Recapping NFL Week 7:

Cardinals turn to rookie QB as starter

The SportsXchange

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.
