Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton likely out for game against Seahawks

A Seattle win Sunday at CenturyLink Field would set up a showdown at Arizona on Dec. 21 for the NFC West title.

And it’s a game in which the Cardinals will almost certainly have to play without quarterback Drew Stanton, who injured his knee during Thursday’s 12-6 win at St. Louis.

Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Stanton won’t need surgery on his right knee, but also said that while he thinks Stanton can return to play this season that he would be surprised if he were able to go against the Seahawks.

Stanton was already the second quarterback to start for Arizona this year, replacing regular Carson Palmer when Palmer suffered a season-ending knee injury in November.

Ryan Lindley took over for Stanton Thursday and Arians hinted today, according to ESPN, that he would likely get the start against the Seahawks, saying he wouldn’t commit to that but that it’s not an open competition. The only other QB on the team’s roster is rookie Logan Thomas, who has played in just one game.

Here’s some more background on Lindley and Arizona’s QB situation from ESPN.
