The Arizona Cardinals' revolving door at quarterback swung again Tuesday, with coach Ken Whisenhunt announcing that John Skelton will return as the starter for Sunday's road game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Ryan Lindley replaced Skelton at quarterback during the Nov. 18 game at Atlanta, and the Cardinals lost three consecutive games with him under center. He completed nine of 20 passes for 64 yards against the Falcons, threw four interceptions Nov. 25 against the St. Louis, then went a woeful 10-for-31 for 72 yards with an interception Sunday at the New York Jets.
The Cardinals went 0-for-15 on third downs in a 7-6 loss to the Jets.
Lindley hasn't thrown a touchdown pass this season.
Skelton started the season-opening win over the Seahawks before he was replaced by Kevin Kolb. When Kolb sustained rib and chest injuries Oct. 14 against Buffalo, Skelton stepped back into the starting role. Skelton is 1-4 as a starter this season, and he's thrown two touchdown passes and five interceptions.
In his most recent start, Skelton went 2-for-7 for 6 yards against the Falcons.
Kolb is still out indefinitely.
