Only two quarterbacks will dress, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians made clear earlier in the week. And apparently, Drew Stanton is healthy enough to be one of those two quarterbacks.

Stanton will back up starter Blaine Gabbert here in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

Stanton was limited all week in practice with a sprained right knee, an injury he suffered late in the first quarter against the Seattle Seahawks.

He was one of four Cardinals players listed questionable on Friday’s injury report. The other three: wide receiver John Brown (back), center A.Q. Shipley (shoulder) and tackle John Wetzel (back), are also good to go. Wetzel will start at right tackle.

The Cardinals’ remaining inactives are linebacker Bryson Albright, running back Andre Ellington, safety Harlan Miller, defensive lineman Corey Peters, offensive lineman Max Tuerk and wide receiver Chad Williams.

Peters (ankle) had already been ruled out.

And with Ellington a healthy scratch, running back D.J. Foster is active for the first time as a Cardinals player.

For the Texans, running back Alfred Blue (hamstring), linebacker Dylan Cole (hamstring), tackle Julien Davenport (shoulder), wide receiver Will Fuller (ribs) and center Greg Mancz (knee/chest) are out due to injury and among the listed inactives.

The others not in uniform for Houston are quarterback Josh Johnson and defensive lineman Chunky Clements.
