Carson Palmer's shoulder issues not solved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said the bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder hasn't progressed as much as he had hoped, but still thinks he can show coaches he's capable of starting Week 5 at Denver, reports ESPN's Ed Werder. Drew Stanton has started the past two games and could face the Broncos if Palmer can't practice fully this week.

Drew Stanton leads second-half comeback Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw two second-half touchdown passes to rookie receiver John Brown, leading Arizona to a 23-14 comeback win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Stanton completed 18 of 33 passes for 244 yards, while rushing for 16 yards on six carries.

Stanton didn't have a very productive first half, completing just 8 of 17 passes for 83 yards as Arizona trailed 14-6 by the break. Stanton then threw touchdown passes of 21 and 24 yards to Brown in the third quarter, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Stanton came close to throwing a third touchdown to Brown in the second half, but he overthrew Brown, who had run past his defender down the left sideline. It would have resulted in a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit Brown in stride. 

The Cardinals head into a bye Week 4 before returning to play Week 5 at Denver. If Carson Palmer (shoulder) is healthy, he is expected to resume the starting quarterback job.


Drew Stanton starts again in place of Carson Palmer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was inactive for a second straight game Week 3 vs. San Francisco because of a shoulder injury. Drew Stanton once again started in Palmer's absence.

Palmer was listed as questionable after being a limited participant in practice all week.


Cardinals planning to start Drew Stanton vs. 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer's status hasn't changed and that backup Drew Stanton is in line to start Sunday against the 49ers, reports the Bay Area News Group. Palmer has a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder.

Stanton completed 14 of 29 throws for 167 yards in the Week 2 win at the Giants.


Carson Palmer not any better Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who missed the Week 2 win at the Giants with a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder, showed no improvement Monday, according to the team's website.

"Hopefully any minute it starts working," Palmer said. "We'll see."

If healthy, Palmer will start Week 3 against the 49ers, even if he is unable to practice all week. Drew Stanton will make his second straight start if Palmer can't play. There is no timetable for Palmer's return.

"We're doing every kind of research we possibly can," coach Bruce Arians said about Palmer's injury. "He's getting every kind of treatment known to man. He's got more needles sticking in him half the day than most of us in our lifetime."


Drew Stanton leads Cards to win in place of injured QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw no touchdowns Sunday against the Giants. However, he was able to play turnover-free football and that was good enough to lead Arizona to a 25-14 win Week 2, despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined due to a shoulder injury.

Stanton completed less than half of his passes (14 for 29), finishing with 167 passing yards. He was sacked four times and rushed for minus-2 yards. Stanton was credited with an 8-yard passing touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald on the opening drive of the game, but it was called back as Fitzgerald was ruled down at the 1-yard line after an official review.

Stanton, who was making his first start since 2010, improved to 3-2 in five career starts. The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers and Stanton could make a second consecutive start, as coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer could be out until after the team's Week 4 bye.

(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was officially ruled inactive Week 2 at N.Y. Giants due to a shoulder injury. Drew Stanton drew the start in Palmer's absence.

Report: Carson Palmer set to sit Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the host Giants with a shoulder injury, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport has reported. Palmer tested the shoulder before the game and was declared a no-go.

His absence thrusts Drew Stanton into the starting role. Stanton has not thrown a pass in the NFL since 2010 with Detroit.


Logan Thomas goes to the Cardinals in fourth round


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 120th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected quarterback Logan Thomas from Virginia Tech.

Thomas, the sixth quarterback taken in the draft, looked sharp at the Senior Bowl, which helped his draft stock. Standing at 6-foot-6, 248 pounds, Thomas passed for 2,907 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2013. He also rushed for 344 yards with four touchdowns.

Thomas will likely compete with Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley on the depth chart, behind veteran Carson Palmer.

Nine Cardinals cleared for regular season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett, TE Rob Housler, OL Nate Potter, LB Matt Shaughnessy, QB Drew Stanton and LB Daryl Washington are probable Week 17.

Housler has a groin injury, but practiced in full Thursday and Friday. Dockett is dealing with a shoulder issue.


Stanton goes back to backup


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/2/2013) After all of coach Bruce Arians' comments about how he was comfortable with Drew Stanton as his starting quarterback, the coach has someone else to go with. On Tuesday the Raiders and Cardinals finalized a trade that sent Carson Palmer to the desert where he will likely start ahead of Stanton.

Arians leaning toward Stanton?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/20/2013) In an interview with CBSSports.com at the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix on Wednesday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he would like to name his starting quarterback "tomorrow," but he knows that's not realistic -- especially since he might not have that quarterback on the roster. But Arians did indicate he's "quite comfortable with Drew Stanton," who could be the early favorite to win the job. "I have a history with Drew Stanton," Arians said. "If I name him the quarterback then I’ll feel real comfortable that he’s our guy."

Arians comfortable with Stanton


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/18/2013) Speaking on NFL Network Monday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he'd be fine going with Drew Stanton as his starting quarterback this season. Stanton signed with the Cardinals this offseason after backing up Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, where Arians was the offensive coordinator. "Drew knows the offense, he is more than capable of doing it. If he is our guy, I am comfortable," Arians said.

Cardinals add QB Stanton


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2013) Bruce Arians has signed another friendly face, adding Drew Stanton with a three-year deal, Stanton's agent announced Wednesday. The quarterback worked with Arians last year in Indianapolis and figures to compete for the starting job with the Cards. "This is a great opportunity for Drew," Arians said. "He really impressed me during the year we spent together in Indy. Physically he has everything you want in a quarterback – big with a strong arm, can get it up the field and make all the throws. He’s just as impressive mentally and understands the position. I’m excited to get him here and compete."
