Cardinals re-sign QB Lindley, place Palmer on IR

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed quarterback Ryan Lindley.

Lindley, released by the team at the end of the preseason, takes the roster spot of Carson Palmer, who was placed on injured reserve after tearing an ACL in Sunday's win over St. Louis. Lindley was signed by Arizona from the San Diego Chargers practice squad.

A sixth-round draft pick of the Cardinals out of San Diego State in 2012, Lindley spent two seasons with Arizona, starting three games as a rookie. He was the team's No. 3 quarterback in 2013.

Lindley was released by the Cardinals after he was beat out by rookie Logan Thomas for the third quarterback spot.
