Kurt Warner likes what he sees from Ryan Lindley

In his first career start, Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley impressed longtime NFL QB Kurt Warner.

Longtime NFL quarterback Kurt Warner came away impressed with Arizona Cardinals signal caller Ryan Lindley's first career start, the former Cardinal told Arizona Sports 620's Doug and Wolf (via Adam Green).

After Warner watched Lindley complete 31-of-52 passes for 312 yards in a 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, he talked about the positives from the performance on Wednesday:

"I saw a lot of good things. I felt like, especially early in the game, things were really good."

The game eventually "got away from" Lindley, Warner said, as he threw four interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns by Rams defensive back Janoris Jenkins. Still, the rookie out of San Diego State wasn't afraid to pass the ball, a quality of which Warner was fond:

"But I was impressed; I thought he made some really good throws ... some tough reads or went to places where you might not expect a rookie to go and deliver the football well."

Lindley will make his second career start, and third appearance, on Sunday in a road game against the New York Jets. Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. PT, and the game can be seen on FOX.
