Multiple reports — first coming from Mike Jurecki but then spreading through a ton of national media — say quarterback Drew Stanton has a right knee sprain and will be week-to-week, which is a big deal and definitely not the bad news it could have been. Bruce Arians will speak at 12:15 to clarify, but there will likely still be a vague part of all of this. The good news is that Stanton has a couple of extra days to heal (and even extra hours on the back end, since the Cardinals next play on a Sunday night) before the Seahawks game. But will he be mobile enough to face a Seattle defense? Something tells me this will remain a mystery all week.
But the Cardinals are basically in the playoffs after Thursday night’s win, and this injury news sure makes it sound like Stanton has a chance to be back for at least those games — if not sooner.
UPDATE: Arians comfirmed Stanton’s knee injury is not season-ending. But the coach declined to put a timetable on Stanton’s situation and said Stanton was on crutches. Stanton figures to return. But when? And what could it mean to the Cardinals’ playoff positioning?
