    Browns' Drew Stanton: Handling backup duties in Week 4

    Drew Stanton will serve as the top backup to starting quarterback Baker Mayfield in Sunday's game against the Raiders, a team official told Sam Wyche of NFL Network reports.Stanton has been the third man on the depth chart all season, but he'll move up a spot this week with Tyrod Taylor dealing with a back injury and only having recently cleared the NFL's concussion protocol. Once Taylor is able to get more practice time under his belt, he should recapture the No. 2 gig, which will likely result in Stanton being inactive most weeks.

    Browns' Drew Stanton: Will play Friday against Bills

    Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said Drew Stanton will get on the field during Friday's preseason game versus the Bills, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.Stanton, who didn't play in Cleveland's first preseason game, is still in the mix to be the backup quarterback, though Baker Mayfield should still be viewed as the favorite. However, Jackson likes the experience Stanton brings to the position, and a strong showing from the veteran in the preseason could make the Browns' decision more difficult, according to Petrak.

    Browns' Drew Stanton: Signs deal with Browns

    Drew Stanton (knee) has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, Field Yates of ESPN reports.Stanton may have to compete with Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan for one roster spot, considering the Browns already traded for Tyrod Taylor and are expected to select a quarterback at No. 1 overall in the upcoming draft. Stanton had six touchdown, five interceptions and 894 passing yards (5.6 per attempt) while completing only 49.7 percent of his throws in five games for the Cardinals last year, playing through an ACL injury and a bone bruise in his knee the final two weeks of the season. He'll turn 34 in May.

    Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Won't require ACL surgery

    Drew 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 Arizona 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.

    Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Has been playing with torn ACL

    According to a tweet from teammate Larry Fitzgerald, Drew 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 Arizona Cardinals this year and will be heading into free agency this offseason.

    Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Tosses two TD strikes Sunday

    Drew 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 Arizona 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: Taking back starting job

    Drew Stanton will replace Blaine Gabbert as the starter for Week 16 against the Giants.Gabbert had a few moments in his first two weeks as the starter, but his five-game stint ultimately included six interceptions, two lost fumbles and 23 sacks. While Stanton can't possibly be much worse, he'll have to deal with the same injury-depleted supporting cast that made it easy for opponents to tee off on Gabbert. Sunday's matchup is the only real cause for optimism, as the Giants have surrendered a league-worst 30 passing touchdowns while allowing opponents to complete 62.6 percent of their throws for 7.8 yards per attempt.

    Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Sticking in backup role

    Drew Stanton will remain the Arizona 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.
