  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Won't require ACL surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stanton (knee) won't require offseason surgery to address a torn ACL in his knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The quarterback clarified Monday that he's dealing with a bone bruise rather than an ACL injury, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Cardinals teammate Larry Fitzgerald had previously posted Sunday on his personal Twitter account after Arizona's 26-24 victory over the Seahawks that Stanton had started the final two games of the season with a torn ACL. While Stanton offered more definitive word on the nature of his injury, Rapoport's report adds that the signal caller had been playing through a chronic ACL issue for years, with the final ligament having snapped after he got over the bone bruise. Because of the lack of stability to the knee caused by playing without an ACL, medical professionals usually advise against forgoing surgery, but it sounds as though Stanton is willing to accept the risk due to his status as a pocket passer rather than a quarterback that relies on mobility and change of direction. Stanton will become a free agent this summer and will look to land a backup role somewhere.

  • According to a tweet from teammate Larry Fitzgerald, Stanton played the final two weeks of the season with a torn ACL. This is the first mentioning of an ACL tear for Stanton, but assuming it's true, the tear likely must have been minor in nature. That said, it's possible offseason surgery will be required to correct the issue. Stanton appeared in five games for the Cardinals this year and will be heading into free agency this offseason.

  • Stanton competed 20 of 34 passes for 209 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 23-0 win over the Giants. Lining up under center for the first time since Week 10, Stanton didn't exactly make Cardinals fans forget about the uneven quarterback play of Blaine Gabbert the last five outings. That said, two of the team's six full first-half possessions resulted in a 21-yard field goal from Phil Dawson and 13-yard TD connection with Larry Fitzgerald, all but putting the game out of reach. Stanton proceeded to open the second half with an 11-play, 75-yard march that culminated with a touchdown throw to John Brown. With the Seahawks on tap in the regular-season finale, Stanton has a fair chance to replicate his Week 10 performance (273 passing yards) against a defense without the services of Richard Sherman (Achilles) and Kam Chancellor (neck).

  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Sticking in backup role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stanton will remain the Cardinals' backup quarterback Sunday against the Rams after head coach Bruce Arians named Blaine Gabbert the Week 13 starter, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. Facing the team that drafted him 10th overall in the 2011, Gabbert carved up the Jaguars for 241 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 38 attempts in a Week 12 win, including two big throws on the Cardinals' final drive that led to a game-winning field goal by Phil Dawson. Though Gabbert's ball protection has left something to be desired, his 6.9 yards per attempt over two starts exceeds the 5.9 mark Stanton put up over three games (two starts) in place of Carson Palmer (arm) before Stanton suffered a knee injury that paved the way for Gabbert to earn a look.

  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stanton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The Cardinals know what they have in Stanton, so they're using his recovery from a sprained knee to evaluate Blaine Gabbert. Stanton will thus back up Gabbert for a second consecutive game and potentially beyond.
