The rehab of the quarterbacks are going to be a main storyline for the Cardinals this offseason and well they should — for all the injuries the team suffered last season, it was the quarterbacks going down that were at the core of the team’s late struggles. Starter Carson Palmer continues his rehab from a torn ACL and that will likely be taken slowly during the offseason. He needs to be ready for training camp. But backup Drew Stanton was in a good mood Tuesday talking about coming back from his knee injury.
“I’m getting to the point where I am feeling really confident in my knee,” Stanton said, emphasizing he has “no limitations” in terms of football heading into workouts. He will not be wearing a knee brace.
Stanton did say he and the Cardinals have set up a plan for offseason conditioning work that will allow Stanton to “be smart” and cut down on some of the pounding the knee might normally take. But that’s about preventative maintenance as the Cards try hard to make sure their quarterbacks stay healthy this time around.
— One other quick note with the Cards in their second day of strength and conditioning work. As always, the only work that is mandatory in the offseason is the minicamp in mid-June. This is all voluntary. While it wasn’t possible to do a roster checklist this morning, I can’t think of any player of note that wasn’t here today.
