Drew Stanton: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he expects Stanton (knee) to be "ready to go" for the team's offseason activities, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports.

Stanton won't require another surgery on his right knee, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Stanton suffered a sprained knee in Week 15, which kicked off a "will he or won't he" return before the Cardinals' campaign concluded. However, between the final two games of the regular season, he underwent a procedure to combat an infection in the aforementioned region, all but ending his hopes of playing again this season. The development forced coach Bruce Arians to stick with the underwhelming Ryan Lindley through Saturday's season-ending loss in the wild-card round at Carolina, but worry not, as Stanton expects to be healthy by the start of offseason workouts. Depending on the progress made by Carson Palmer (knee) with his own recovery, Stanton could begin next season as Arizona's starting quarterback. Otherwise, another year as a backup would be on Stanton's docket.
Stanton (knee) is out for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Stanton out this weekend, and presumably day-to-day beyond that -- should Arizona advance in the playoffs -- Ryan Lindley will draw the start at QB for the Cardinals on Saturday.
Stanton (knee) wasn't spotted during the open portion of Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Stanton (knee) wasn't present for the open portion of Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Bruce Arians previously indicated that Stanton needed to practice either Wednesday or Thursday in order to play Saturday at Carolina, and with that in mind -- what, if anything -- the QB is able to do Thursday will be telling. At this stage though, it looks like Ryan Lindley will likely draw this weekend's start.
Coach Bruce Arians confirmed Tuesday that Stanton (knee) must practice either Wednesday or Thursday in order to play Saturday at Carolina, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After Stanton underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up an infection in his left knee last Wednesday, an appearance in practice may be too much to ask for this week. At the very least, the Cardinals will soon know if they have a veteran in Stanton or his underwhelming replacement, Ryan Lindley, under center for their playoff opener.
Stanton (knee) will not practice Tuesday and remains day-to-day, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.

On Monday, general manager Steve Keim said Stanton (knee) is "day-to-day and we're hopeful" that he's able to play in Saturday's wild-card matchup at Carolina, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Stanton's ability to suit up is surely tied to appearances in practice this week, which aren't a certainty due to the arthroscopic surgery performed to clean up an infection in his left knee last Wednesday. Meanwhile, coach Bruce Arians reiterated the company line on Stanton, stating the quarterback is "progressing," but "nothing [has] really changed" surrounding his health, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. Ryan Lindley's two-touchdown performance Sunday in San Francisco likely allayed concerns that he isn't up to the task of heading Arizona's offense, but he left points on the field with two first-half interceptions in 49ers' territory. When healthy, Stanton is the clear-cut No. 1 QB at Arians' disposal, but until active status on game day appears imminent, Lindley will be under center for the Cardinals.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Stanton will be the backup to Andrew Luck, giving the rookie a veteran presence behind him. It's hard to see Stanton getting any playing time barring a Luck injury.

2011

Stanton returns to Detroit on a one-year contract to reprise his role as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill. With Stafford's injury history, it wouldn't be surprising to see Stanton move up the depth chart, but he likely won't see much time unless both Stafford and Hill go down with injuries.

2010

Stanton will be the Lions' third quarterback, though his roster spot will always be in jeopardy should another, more experienced veteran quarterback on the waiver wire catch their eye.

2009

Stanton, Detroit's 2007 second-round pick, has yet to be given a real chance to show what he can do as a professional. There was talk early in the offseason that Detroit would bring in a veteran to compete with Stanton for the third-string QB job, but it now appears that Stanton's roster spot is secured. The former Michigan State star won't see the feild unless injuries strike both Matthew Stafford and Daunte Culpepper, in which case Detroit would probably look for a veteran option via trade or free agency.

2008

Stanton is the future at quarterback for the Lions, but that future appears to be at least a year or two off. He will have to battle Dan Orlovsky to be Jon Kitna's primary backup this year.

2007

The Lions took Drew Stanton with their first of three second-round picks in April's draft. He enters training camp third on the depth chart behind Jon Kitna and Dan Orlovsky. They likely view him as the future once Kitna is gone, but he will only make an impact this year if there are injuries.
