Bruce Arians announces quarterback rotation for second preseason game

New, comments

The Cardinals quarterback depth chart has not change.

After week one of the preseason for the Arizona Cardinals, the likelihood of Blaine Gabbert being on the final 53 man roster has gone up.

He played a very good game, Bruce Arians was happy, and of course the fans were overly excited.

Arians put a little bit of damper on the Blaine Gabbert experience, as he is still clearly the third quarterback on the Cardinals, but Arians did not rule out a chance for Gabbert to surpass incumbent Drew Stanton as the lead backup.

For now, the pecking order remains and Gabbert will this time get the grunt work, the second half of the first preseason game for the Oakland Raiders, the Cardinals opponent on Saturday.

It means a chance to again prove himself as a player worth a roster spot and it will also again put him in a position to be successful, where he will be playing against, in theory, inferior competition.

For now, the Cardinals have their second quarterback in Drew Stanton, but two more weeks of Gabbert playing well could make things a little murkier.
