  Colts | Ryan Lindley cut    Tue Feb 9, 03:03 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Ryan Lindley was released Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: With the QB injuries piling up, the Colts added Lindley at the end of December. He'll struggle to find a new spot, but there may be some team willing to bring him on board as a camp arm.

  Colts | Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley share reps    Wed Dec 30, 10:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley, each signed this week, took a majority of the quarterback reps in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: With these two splitting reps, it could have been put together in one blooper reel. Neither option is great for the Colts in Week 17.

  Colts | Indy down to Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley    Wed Dec 30, 06:38 PM

Indianapolis Colts QBs Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley are the likely options to start in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: This is a poor option for the Colts. Avoid your players from the Colts passing game. However, look for Frank Gore to have a good day.

  Colts | Indy starting QB unknown    Wed Dec 30, 01:43 PM

There is no update on who the Indianapolis Colts plan to start at quarterback in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans between QBs Josh Freeman, Ryan Lindley and Stephen Morris. QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) has already been ruled out.

Footballguys view: Freeman and Lindley have starting experience, but neither are exciting options. Morris is a technically-sound quarterback with nice athleticism, but he struggles with accuracy as a passer. While we're avoiding the Colts passing game, we do love Frank Gore and the Colts defense as DFS plays this week.

  Cardinals | Ryan Lindley will start playoff game    Thu Jan 1, 02:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will be the starting quarterback in the Wild Card playoff game.

Footballguys view: In real-life NFL world, this isn't the worst case scenario as long as Lindley can avoid imploding and even then the Cardinals defense can still find ways to win. For fantasy purposes, we'd avoid Lindley if possible and not risk exposure to his meltdown. His ceiling isn't high but his floor is near the earth's molten core.

  Cardinals | Ryan Lindley to start    Thu Dec 25, 02:06 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will start the team's Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: That's a quick hook for Logan Thomas. We didn't even get through the week of practice, and the Cardinals have decided that Lindley is the better start.

  Cardinals | History not on Ryan Lindley's side    Tue Dec 16, 12:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley enters the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks with 181 pass attempts without a touchdown, which is the most in NFL history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Seahawks have allowed only two passing TDs and have intercepted four passes in their last five games. Lindley has the worst completion percentage (51.4), fewest yards per attempt (4.3), least amount of touchdowns (0) and lowest total QBR (9.1) among 60 quarterbacks with a minimum of 150 passing attempts since 2012, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Footballguys view: We're not expecting anything from the Cardinals offense this week.

  Cardinals | Ryan Lindley to start in Week 16    Mon Dec 15, 02:18 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will be the starting quarterback in Week 16, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: This headline should send chills down the spines of Cardinals fans. They're having a great season, but all of these QB injuries are likely to shorten their year. Arians said the team will also have a package for QB Logan Thomas during the game.

  Cardinals | Ryan Lindley, Logan Thomas both options    Fri Dec 12, 08:43 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Logan Thomas and QB Ryan Lindley are both options to start in Week 16, but head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Dec. 12, that he won't make a decision on a starter until Sunday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Thomas has a strong arm but poor accuracy. Lindley has a strong arm but poor accuracy. Thomas is a better athlete and more dangerous as a runner. This could put him over the top in this battle. Lindley has a little more experience, so that could give him the edge. Either one is bad news for the Cardinals offense and the weapons in the passing game.

  Cardinals | Drew Stanton going for tests    Fri Dec 12, 12:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) will undergo more tests when the team returns to Arizona, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'We'll take it very slow with him and see how it goes once we get in the MRI and all that information,' Arians said. Stanton suffered a right knee injury as a rookie in 2007 and had surgery, and he also tore ligaments in his right knee in 2003 in college. QB Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton in the game Thursday, Dec. 11, with Arians electing Lindley over rookie QB Logan Thomas because of Lindley's experience.

  Cardinals | Not expected to make move at QB    Sat Mar 8, 10:44 PM

The Arizona Cardinals have QBs Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley under contract, so it is unlikely they will make a move in the offseason to upgrade. Head coach Bruce Arians has made it clear Palmer is the team's starter next season, and he has confidence in Stanton as the backup.

Footballguys view: Palmer is the starter, and he's essentially entrenched for the near future. Stanton knows the offense well as he worked under Arians during their time together in Indianapolis.

  Cardinals | Bruce Arians willing to draft QB    Fri Jan 31, 09:26 PM

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he is willing to draft a quarterback in the second or third day of the 2014 NFL Draft if he believes that quarterback can become a better player than QBs Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley.

Footballguys view: Arians loves quarterbacks with big arms who can throw deep. We could see them target a guy like Zach Mettenberger (LSU) in the second round. Players like Jeff Matthews (Cornell), Keith Wenning (Ball State) or Logan Thomas (Virginia Tech) could be options for the Cardinals on the final day of the draft.

  Cardinals | Ryan Lindley may not return    Thu Jan 2, 07:01 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley may not return next season if the team decides to take a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Lindley has failed to impress during his two-year career. He's got a strong arm, but he's not very accurate or athletic. Lindley may have to find his way to a different team as a developmental third-string quarterback.
