  • 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.

  • Stanton (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Stanton had the same designation last week and was deemed healthy enough to serve as Blaine Gabbert's backup in a 31-21 loss to the Texans. The same can be expected this Sunday against a much tougher opponent. Stanton could get the starting job back, or even enter as a mid-game replacement, if Gabbert struggles against the stingy Jacksonville defense.

  • Stanton (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, will be a game-time decision to serve as Blaine Gabbert's backup in the contest, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Stanton was a limited participant at every practice this week after spraining his right shoulder in his second start of the season Week 10 against the Seahawks. He'll likely be ready to go by next week if he can't play Sunday, though it's quite possible the Cardinals stick with Gabbert as their starting quarterback if he fares well against the Texans. Should Stanton end up inactive, the newly signed Matt Barkley would serve as the backup Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Limited Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stanton (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. So far, the Cardinals have delayed the announcement of their starting quarterback for Sunday's matchup with the Texans. As head coach Bruce Arians told Kyle Odegard of the team's official site Wednesday, Stanton is progressing through a knee sprain, which has manifested itself in participation in drills the past two days. If the Cardinals eventually turn elsewhere at quarterback, Blaine Gabbert is gearing up for the start by taking most of the first-team reps in the early stages of practice this week.
