Bruce Arians: QB Carson Palmer way ahead of schedule


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/21/2015) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio that quarterback Carson Palmer is "so far" ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, reports ESPN.com.

Palmer, who's two months removed from surgery, hopes to return for offseason workouts in May. The initial timetable had him returning in June or July.

"I wouldn’t put it past him to be to be out there in some of the OTAs," Arians said.

Arians added that backup quarterback Drew Stanton “should be ready to go” after he missed the final three games with a right knee injury.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer to start walking/jogging Monday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/4/2015) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who had surgery in mid-November to fix a torn ACL, said he'll start "up-tempo walking-slash-jogging on Monday, so I'm excited about that." Palmer told the team's website he hopes to return during OTAs in June.

The Cardinals went 6-0 with Palmer starting this season. He turned 35 late last month and has three years left on his contract.


Report: Cardinals QB Drew Stanton to visit specialist this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton is expected to see a specialist this week to re-evaluate his injured knee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Stanton underwent arthroscopic surgery to fight off an infection in late December. Per Rapoport, there's not much optimism that he'll be available to play if Arizona advances to the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. They'll face the Panthers on Saturday with Ryan Lindley making a third straight start in his absence.


Cardinals' Ryan Lindley tosses two scores Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley tossed two scores against the 49ers Week 17.

Lindley completed 23 of 39 passes for 316 yards. He threw two touchdowns, but also added three interceptions during the contest. When Lindley had time to throw, he was able to take shots down the field. He averaged 8.1 yards per completion. Drew Stanton's status remains up in the air, meaning Lindley could start the team's first playoff game next week. The Cardinals are set to take on the Panthers. The Panthers are favored by -4.5 points. 


Report: Cardinals reverse course, will start QB Ryan Lindley


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/25/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has changed his mind and will start quarterback Ryan Lindley, not rookie Logan Thomas, in Sunday's game at San Francisco, reports the Arizona Republic. Lindley hit 18 of 44 throws for 216 yards with an interception in the Week 16 loss to Seattle. He has not thrown a touchdown in 225 career pass attempts.

Arians earlier said he'd play Thomas for at least the first half. But that was before Thomas failed to inspire confidence at Wednesday's practice.

Thomas has appeared in two games, completing 1 of 9 throws. Starter Drew Stanton (knee) is not expected to be ready until the playoffs.

Arizona remains a 6-point underdog Sunday.


Arians: '85 percent' chance Drew Stanton is ready for playoffs


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/24/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio there's an "85 percent" chance quarterback Drew Stanton will return from his knee injury for the team's first playoff game.

"He's going to practice some this week and we'll see how it goes," Arians said, via ESPN.com. "Do not plan on playing him this week unless it's absolutely necessary."

Rookie quarterback Logan Thomas will play at least the first half of the regular-season finale at San Francisco, Arians said, with Ryan Lindley available to relieve him. Arizona opened as a 4.5-point underdog, then the line moved to 6.

The Cardinals likely will enter the playoffs as a wildcard and play on the first weekend of January. Arizona needs Stanton (7 TDs, 5 INTs) to have a realistic chance of jumpstarting its offense.


Report: Cardinals will start Logan Thomas over Ryan Lindley


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas  will to make his first career start on Sunday against the 49ers, a source told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Coach Bruce Arians announced that Thomas will be the starter over Ryan Lindley on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM radio soon after his press conference on Monday.

"We'll go with Logan, and to be honest with you, I'll have a quick hook," Arians said. "I want to see what he's got with a week of preparation for our future, and into the playoffs what's the best thing for us."

With Drew Stanton (knee) still sidelined, coach Bruce Arians went with Lindley in a Week 16 home loss to Seattle. Lindley completed 18 of 44 passes for 216 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.

Thomas has appeared in two games this season. He has only completed one of nine attempts. His only completion resulted in an 81-yard touchdown pass to Andre Ellington.

Arizona is currently a 4 1/2-point underdog at San Francisco.


Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley fails to find the end zone Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley failed to find the end zone Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Lindley completed 18 of 44 passes for 216 yards. He threw one interception and fumbled during the contest. Lindley couldn't get much going against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. When he did have opportunties to throw, Lindley had to settle for check-downs. He averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt. The Seattle pass rush gave him a hard time, coming up with four sacks. 

If Drew Stanton is unable to return, Lindley would take on the 49ers Week 17.


Cardinals name Ryan Lindley starter; Logan Thomas could also play


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said during his Monday press conference that Ryan Lindley will start at quarterback in Week 16 at Seattle, but the team will have a package of plays for rookie Logan Thomas as well, according to the Arizona Republic.

"Go sling it, baby. There's a reason you're here," Arians told Lindley in private when he named him the starter.

Arians went with Lindley over Thomas after Drew Stanton suffered a knee sprain against the Rams in Week 15. Lindley managed to keep his team ahead, completing 4 of 10 passes for 30 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in relief.

Cardinals coach Arians: Drew Stanton will not need surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians addressed the media Friday to announce that quarterback Drew Stanton does not have any ligament damage and will not need surgery to repair a knee sprain, per the team's official website.

Stanton went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of Thursday's win over St. Louis. Arians said that Stanton "has a chance to return this season. It's a day to day thing." Arians was noncommittal when asked about his starter for Week 16 against Seattle.

"I'll sit down and think who I want to play."


Report: Cardinals QB Drew Stanton has ACL, MCL sprain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) According to a report from Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910, Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton underwent an MRI on his injured knee, which revealed a sprained ACL and a Grade 2 MCL Sprain. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Stanton's season is not believed to be over, as he's considered week to week moving forward.

Stanton was carted off the field Thursday against St. Louis with the injury. Coach Bruce Arians could provide more information when he addresses the media later in the day. If Stanton misses any game time, it appears as if Ryan Lindley will get the start over rookie Logan Thomas. 


Cardinals coach Arians explains why he chose Lindley over Thomas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) When Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of Thursday's win over St. Louis, coach Bruce Arians chose to go with Ryan Lindley over rookie Logan Thomas. He explained his reasoning following the game, per Pro Football Talk.

"I went with [Lindley] because of his experience, he has been in a stadium and played against these guys and this was not a time to put [Logan Thomas] out there," Arians said. "He is going to be a great player someday, but he is not ready for this yet. Ryan was more than ready; I really liked his poise and his confidence. I didn't feel like we had to scale it back, but I let him throw some balls and he made some nice throws."

Lindley completed four of his 10 passes for 30 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in relief. Stanton is due for an MRI on his injured knee, and depending on the severity of Stanton's injury, Lindley may get the start over Thomas come Week 16 against Seattle.


Drew Stanton avoids turnovers in Week 14 victory


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/7/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton hit 15 of 30 throws for 239 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Stanton added 17 yards on four carries and committed zero turnovers after throwing five interceptions in his previous three games.

Stanton hit wideout Jaron Brown for a 26-yard score in the third quarter, just his second touchdown pass in the last three weeks. Stanton found tight end John Carlson for the 2-point conversion.

Stanton visits the Rams on Thursday.


Bruce Arians not considering benching QB Drew Stanton


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/3/2014) The Cardinals have scored a total of 21 points in their last two games, both losses, as quarterback Drew Stanton threw one touchdown pass and three interceptions. Coach Bruce Arians said he remains committed to Stanton.

"There's no thought on changing QBs," he told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Drew will take us where we need to go."

With Carson Palmer out for the year with a torn ACL, the Cardinals have Stanton, rookie Logan Thomas and Ryan Lindley at quarterback. Arizona hosts the Chiefs on Sunday.


Cardinals' Drew Stanton turns it over twice Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton turned the ball over twice Week 13 against the Falcons.

Stanton completed 24 of 39 passes for 294 yards and one score during the contest. He also threw two interceptions. While Arizona had some trouble putting points on the board, the offense seemed to function fairly well. Stanton averaged 7.5 yards per attempt, and was not sacked during the game. Stanton also had one rushing attempt, gaining 7 yards. 

He'll look to get back on track Week 14 against the Chiefs.


Drew Stanton comes back down to earth


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) If Drew Stanton's performance Week 11 against Detroit, when he threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, got Fantasy owners thinking the Cardinals wouldn't really miss Carson Palmer at quarterback, his performance Week 12 at Seattle was a dose of reality. He threw for just 149 yards and an interception.

Granted, it was against one of the league's best defenses, but still, it was closer to what you'd expect from a career backup. So in five starts between two different injuries for Palmer, Stanton has had two games in which he's offered relevant Fantasy production. In the other three, he's fallen well short -- perhaps even embarrassingly short considering his receiving corps.

When ranking all 32 starting quarterbacks for Fantasy purposes, he may not be at the very bottom, but he's not far off. Most likely, even owners in two-quarterback leagues will want to pass on him.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer goes under the knife


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his ACL, according to the team's official website. Palmer suffered the injury Week 10 against the Rams and was waiting for the swelling on his knee to go down before having the procedure.

Palmer, who signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury, is expected to have a long road back in his rehabilitation process. He is targeting a return at some point near the end of Arizona's OTAs in June.


Drew Stanton throws for career-high 306 yards, two TDs


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/16/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed 21 of 32 throws for a career-high 306 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in the Week 11 win over the Lions. Stanton threw touchdowns to wideout Michael Floyd on Arizona's first two possessions before bogging down against the league's top-ranked defense.

On the opening drive, Stanton threw high to the corner of the end zone and let Floyd box out his defender for a 42-yard score. The second touchdown was a well-timed 12-yard out route.

Stanton has thrown five touchdowns against two interceptions in five games this season. He'll visit Seattle in Week 12.


New starter Drew Stanton has not committed a turnover


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/10/2014) The Cardinals will go with quarterback Drew Stanton the rest of the season, and he says he's ready for the job. In the four games in which he's appeared, Stanton has thrown for 614 yards and three touchdowns without an interception or a lost fumble.

The only blemish is his 49.5 percent completion rate.

"It's an opportunity I've been looking forward to for a long time," he told the team's website after Carson Palmer was placed on IR with a torn ACL. "It's been eight years that I've been working toward this, so I don't take it lightly. It comes under unfortunate circumstances, without a doubt, but it's also, like I was saying [Sunday], part of my job description."

Coach Bruce Arians said Stanton has "proven to everybody he's more than capable of finishing the job this team has started."

Stanton plays the Lions' top-ranked defense in Week 11.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer headed to IR with torn ACL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed quarterback Carson Palmer's injury during Monday's press conference. Palmer will miss the remainder of the 2014 season with a torn ACL and will be placed on the injured reserve list, per the team's official website.

Palmer signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total, just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury. Arians told reporters that his starting quarterback did not suffer any other ligament damage, which means he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2015 season. He is expected to undergo surgery in a "couple of weeks" once the swelling on his knee goes down.


Cardinals QB Drew Stanton comes on in relief


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton came on in relief of Carson Palmer Week 10.

Palmer went down with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter, paving the way for Stanton. Though Stanton only had five attempts, he made them count. Stanton completed three passes for 85 yards and a score. He managed to hit John Brown on a 48 yard score on his third attempt. Stanton also had two rushing attempts from 3 yards.

If Palmer can't go, Stanton will likely start against Lions Week 11. 


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer average before injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer turned in an average game before leaving with a knee injury. 

Palmer completed 25 of 36 passes, but did not toss any scores. He was picked off once and fumbled, but did not turn the ball over on the fumble. Palmer wound up leaving the game early in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. He wasn't really touched on the play, and wound up going down after trying to set his feet. He was able to walk off the field and was carted to the locker room. The fear is that Palmer tore his ACL, but that isn't confirmed at this time. 

The Cardinals will take on the Lions next week, but it's unclear if Palmer will play.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Carson Palmer has agreed to a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Palmer was set to be a free agent after the 2014 season. He was earning a base salary of $9 million, with $1 million in roster bonus before the announcement of the extension. The team has not revealed the exact nature of his guarantees, but given his history of injuries, the contract will likely include some protections on a year-to-year basis.

Palmer was acquired by the Cardinals via trade from Oakland before the start of the 2013 season. He has led Arizona to a 7-1 record and has yet to lose a game while under center this season. He's compiled 1,385 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.
