TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The quarterback situation for the Arizona Cardinals is in disarray again following the benching of John Skelton early in the team's 23-19 loss at Atlanta.

Rookie Ryan Lindley replaced Skelton and had a difficult day as Arizona managed to lose despite six turnovers by the Falcons, five of them on Matt Ryan interceptions.

Asked if he would stick with Lindley, coach Ken Whisenhunt said he and his staff will, in his words, "sit down as a staff and look at what we're trying to get done and make that evaluation."

Whisenhunt says he expects Kevin Kolb, out with a rib injury, to work back into practice this week. But Kolb's return could still be a ways off.

The Cardinals have lost six straight after opening the season 4-0.
