TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - 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.
