Backup quarterback Drew Stanton made his first start of the preseason Thursday night in Denver, however with his spot on the Arizona Cardinals’ 53-man roster all but cemented, the seven-year veteran’s appearance was brief.
Arizona went three-and-out on Stanton’s only drive in the first quarter and the former Michigan State standout failed to complete his two pass attempts to Jim Dray and Michael Floyd.
Stanton, who signed a three-year, $8.2 million contract in March 2013, finished the preseason 25-of-45 for 314 yards to go along with a touchdown and two interceptions.
