Stanton to start for Cardinals vs. 49ers

Tempe, AZ ( – Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians announced
Friday that quarterback Drew Stanton will start Sunday against the San
Francisco 49ers.

Arizona’s season-opening win over the Chargers. If Palmer can play on Sunday,
he’ll be the backup.

Palmer was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. Defensive end
Frostee Rucker (calf) and tight end Rob Housler (hip) are also questionable.

Linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) and punter Dave Zastudil (groin) have been
ruled out.
