Ryan Lindley reported to get start at quarterback for Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals went back to work Thursday amid media reports that Coach Bruce Arians has changed his mind and decided to start Ryan Lindley at quarterback Sunday in the regular-season finale at San Francisco.

Azcentral.com, which includes the Arizona Republic, first reported the quarterback switch.

Arians did not talk to reporters Thursday and offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin was not forthcoming about the reported quarterback switch.

"I guess we'll see on Sunday," Goodwin said.

Arians had said that rookie Logan Thomas would get his first NFL start against the 49ers but apparently didn't like what he saw in Wednesday's practice. Lindley was working with the No. 1 unit in the brief portion of Thursday's practice that was open to reporters.
