Report: Cardinals reverse course, will start QB Ryan Lindley


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:12 pm ET) 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 | CBSSports.com
(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.


Cardinals list inactives for Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Cardinals have listed QB Drew Stanton, WR Brittan Golden, S Chris Clemons, G Jonathan Cooper, NT Alameda Ta'amu, OL Anthony Steen, DE Kareem Martin as inactive Week 16 against the Seahawks. 

Stanton came into the contest listed as doubtful due to a knee injury. Clemons was considered probable due to a knee issue, but will not play. The other five players are healthy scratches. 


Cardinals QB Drew Stanton ruled doubtful for Seattle game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) was unable to practice on Friday, just a day removed from a being a limited participant in practice. The Cardinals officially designated Stanton as doubtful for Sunday's contest at home against Seattle. If Stanton can't play, the Cardinals will have Ryan Lindley under center, with a special package also designed for rookie Logan Thomas.

Arizona is a 7 1/2-point home underdog on Sunday.


Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) limited in practice Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, the team announced.

Stanton hurt the knee Sunday against the Rams and appeared destined to miss Week 16's matchup with the Seahawks, but coach Bruce Arians indicated Wednesday that Stanton could play this Sunday in a best-case scenario. Arians did say Wednesday that Ryan Lindley would start against the Seahawks, and he's still the favorite to line up under center, but Stanton's absence isn't a foregone conclusion at this point.


Cardinals unsure of when Drew Stanton will return


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) During his weekly appearance on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said it’s difficult to put a timeline on when quarterback Drew Stanton can return from his knee injury.

Stanton is dealing with a grade 2 MCL sprain, but the team has no established timetable for his return.

“Everybody heals differently,” Keim said. “Drew will be here around the clock rehabbing, and I know he’ll be ready to go as soon as possible.”


Report: Cardinals' Drew Stanton expected to return for playoffs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton is suffering from a grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to return for the playoffs, NFL.com reports.

The grade 2 MCL sprain is the same knee injury suffered by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who missed two games while recovering before returning in Week 14 and playing again on short rest Thursday. If Stanton matches that timetable, he'd be available for the first round of the playoffs should the Cardinals not land one of the two byes in the NFC. The Cardinals play the Seahawks and 49ers over the last two weeks of the regular season.


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.

He was unable to return to the game, with the Cardinals hanging on for a 12-6 win. The Cardinals should have an update on his outlook for the remainder of the season after Friday's MRI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Stanton was able to hop off the field on one leg after suffering the injury while being sacked in the third quarter, but he was eventually carted to the locker room for further examination. He completed 12 of his 20 attempts for 109 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions before suffering the injury. Ryan Lindley has taken over as the Cardinals' quarterback in the absence of Stanton.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton was removed from Thursday's game after suffering an apparent leg injury during the third quarter.

Stanton hopped on one leg to the sideline after taking a sack on second down and was replaced on Ryan Lindley, who completed a pass on third down that brought the team into field-goal range, with kicker Chandler Cantazaro putting the Cardinals up 9-3 on the next play.

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 Drew Stanton held in check vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed just 14 of his 26 pass attempts for 149 yards with no touchdowns and one interception while adding 23 rushing yards on four carries in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 12.

Stanton had virtually no chance against a stout Seahawks secondary in Seattle while missing Larry Fitzgerald (knee). He was able to lead his second drive into Seahawks territory mainly on a pass-interference call but watched the Arizona kicker miss a 49-yard field goal. He didn't get the ball into Seattle territory again until his last drive of the first half, but the Cardinals had to settle for a short field goal with seconds left before halftime. The Cardinals were unable to penetrate further than the Seattle 40-yard line in the second half.

Stanton appeared to potentially suffer an ankle injury while failing on a third-down conversion in his final offensive drive but said after the game that it was nothing serious and that he would have come back into the game had the offense gotten the ball back. He may receive a little extra rest this week but should be good to go for his Week 13 matchup with the Falcons.


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


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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.
