Anderson starting again, Leinart meets with coach

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Derek Anderson will start at quarterback again for Arizona when the Cardinals play Washington on Thursday night in their final preseason game.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt says he will use the same playing order as he did in last Saturday's win at Chicago. That means Matt Leinart
will come in to replace Anderson at some point.

Whisenhunt's decision comes after he met with Leinart on Monday afternoon after the former Heisman Trophy winner told reporters that he had outplayed Anderson in training camp and preseason, and that his problem with his coach "probably goes beyond football."

Whisenhunt says he's always told his players if they have a problem to come to him. He says he talked to Leinart earlier about the situation but obviously a second conversation was necessary.
