    Cardinals' Drew Stanton says he'll be healthy by April

    Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton is on the road to recovery. The 30-year-old quarterback is in the middle of a rehab program to be able to get back on the field this spring. "I'll be full strength by time we start offseason program," Stanton said at Tuesday's Super Bowl Media Day. "I don't really need to do anything now so just kinda let my body rest to get away from the game a little bit, spend time with my family and get refreshed for next season." Stanton said he would have needed one more week before trying to give it a go in the playoffs with the knee injury. "I was going to need at least another week to have a shot," Stanton said. "That was my hope. So, I was trying to find ways to get ready to go, talking to the training staff and talking to guys (about) what I can be doing when we would get back from that flight from Carolina. It didn't work out unfortunately, but it was a difficult situation the way everything ended. At the same time, I think that the building blocks are starting to fall into place for us."
