Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. Stanton did not practice leading up to the Week 6 game, but the team is still hoping he'll be cleared in time for the game against Washington.

Week 8: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The return of Carson Palmer continues to produce quality results - he again had two TD passes (he's done so in each of the two games since he returned to action), with 22/31 for 253 yards, with one interception and one sack taken for -11 yards. Michael Floyd is back in the fantasy scene with Palmer throwing the ball - he's seen 10 targets for 7/94/2 receiving over the past two games, while Larry Fitzgerald has handled 11 for 10/119/1. Andre Ellington (18 for 12/98/0), John Brown (11 for 6/84/0) and tight end John Carlson (10 for 6/34/0) have also been involved regularly with Palmer calling the shots again. The Eagles' pass D is very generous with TDs, having surrendered 13 so far this season, vs. a mere three interceptions (tied for 24th in the NFL) generated. They rank 23rd in the NFL averaging 256.5 net passing yards given out per game, and have 19 sacks to their credit (tied for eighth in the NFL). The Eagles sacked the Giants' quarterbacks eight times two weeks ago (for -43 yards) while holding them to 17/28 for 168 net yards, and zero TDs or interceptions. Two games back, Philadelphia allowed three passing TDs to Austin Davis (29/49 341 yards, zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -34 yards). On balance, this is a sub-par unit almost all the way across the board despite the good game against Eli Manning and company. Advantage, Palmer and company.

2014 Week 5 vs DEN (11 / 26 / 118 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Stanton left the game midway through the third quarter on Sunday with a concussion, and prior to that played with mixed results. Stanton was more a victim of his circumstances then anything else, suffering from the offensive line's worst performance of the season as well as an uncharacteristically high number of drops from his receivers. Still, Coach Arians has harped on the offense's inability to score touchdowns in the red zone, and that trend carried through against the Broncos. Both of Stanton's more successful first half drives stalled out into field goal conversions, and his only TD conversion came when an interception set up the ball at the Denver's 5-yard line. That said, with a 2nd string quarterback perfection shouldn't be expected, and his teammates simply did not do enough to lift him up. His concussion will leave him questionable going forward, but Stanton once again proved he's capable of success in this league.

Cardinals | Drew Stanton cleared to play (Fri Oct 10, 10:29 PM) - Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (concussion) has passed all his exams and has been cleared to play in the Week 6 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Oct. 12.

Our View: Stanton is not a lock to start and we might not know until game-time if he will start or if he will back up Logan Thomas, so Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald owners can't get too excited yet, but things are looking up for Stanton.
