Arizona Cardinals elevate quarterback Drew Anderson from practice squad

NFL: Preseason-Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

In case you needed to be any more confused heading into tomorrow, the Arizona Cardinals announced they elevated practice squad quarterback Drew Anderson for Sunday’s game.

This means… nothing as far as the Kyler Murray situation. If Kyler plays, they need an emergency backup. If Kyler does not play, they need a backup.

Although, all that matters is Drew Anderson gets a shot.

From the team:

"The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has elevated quarterback Drew Anderson to the active roster from the practice squad and has placed tight end Darrell Daniels (biceps) on injured reserve."

"Anderson (6-4, 221) joined the Cardinals practice squad on December 4 after spending the preseason with the team. He originally signed with the Cardinals in May as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Murray State. Anderson played in 11 games last season at Murray State after transferring from the University of Buffalo and completed 258-of-429 passes for 2,864 yards and 20 touchdowns while also rushing for 225 yards."

"Anderson will wear jersey #3."

Welcome to the team, Drew.
