Lindley replaced Stanton in that game, completing 4-of-10 passes for 30 yards in his first game action since 2012.
"He's a really cerebral young man, he's been in the league for over three [years] and he works hard, extremely hard in the offseason," Fitzgerald said. "We actually train together, and he's a student of the game, really focused. ... We really believe in Ryan, he can make all the throws. We just got to protect him, make some plays for him outside, run the ball. We're going to be just fine."
In six games as a rookie in 2012, Lindley threw for 752 yards, zero touchdowns and seven interceptions. He last started a game on Dec. 23, 2012.
Arians said there will also be a package of plays on Sunday for rookie quarterback Logan Thomas.
The Cardinals (11-3) play the Seattle Seahawks (10-4) Sunday night.
